Scarab and Bloodstone Stickpin

Hans Brassler scarab and bloodstone stickpin. (J9127)


An imaginative interpretation of a winged scarab by Hans Brassler.  The bold heliotrope (bloodstone) with fiery red and dark green details is set as the body of the scarab.  Crafted in 14kt gold,  circa 1910.

Hans Brassler was an imaginative jewelry designer who created beautiful stickpins and other jewels during the early decades of the last century.  In this intriguing jewel he combined elements of Art Nouveau, Gothic Revival and Arts & Crafts design while evoking the mysteries of ancient Egypt.  Note the flowing wings of the scarab ending in tight spirals,  the small Gothic trefoil created where the rear legs of the scarab meet, and the simplicity and balance of the overall design.  Brassler often wedded elements from diverse design influences in his jewels.

Cost:  $675

Measurements:  This 14kt gold stickpin is 2 11/16" long and weighs 3.1 grams.  The scarab measures just under  3/4" by just over 1/2".
