Hans Brassler Lapis Stickpin

Lapis Lazuli

Rich blue lapis lazuli glitters with flecks of fool's gold (pyrite)  like distant stars in the night sky.  A wonderful example of the dramatically sculpted jewels created by Hans Brassler.  Crafted in 14kt gold, circa 1910.

Hans Brassler was an imaginative jeweler/artist who created unique works of art with gemstones and gold.  He drew inspiration from many sources - distant and ancient cultures, natural and organic forms,  and his own fertile imagination.  One aspect of his genius was his ability to bring together design elements from disparate sources to create original and beautiful jewels.

This stickpin is finely crafted with a sturdy frame surrounding the lapis and a strong pin stem securing the stickpin when worn.  The maker's mark for the Brassler workshop ("14B" in an oval) is stamped on the lower reverse beneath the pin stem (see photo below).

Cost: $485

Measurements:  This 14kt gold stickpin is 2 11/16" long and the top is 11/16" tall by 9/16" wide.  It weighs 2.9 grams.
