Brassler Lapis Stickpin

Brassler lapis lazuli stickpin. (J9519)

Medieval Elegance

A rich blue lapis lazuli framed in a distinctive setting reflecting the late Victorian interest in the arts and designs of the Middle Ages.  Created by Hans Brassler in 14kt gold,  circa 1910.

During the 1800s and early 1900s, the Arts & Crafts movement in Britain drew inspiration from the craftsmanship and aesthetics of the Middle Ages.  The interest in the medieval past found expression in everything from large public buildings and private homes to the smallest jewels.  This stickpin with its cruciform shape and the elegant play of yellow gold and rich blue lapis illustrates Brassler's ability to incorporate motifs and design elements from distant historical periods and cultures in his jewels.

This stickpin is beautifully crafted with a sturdy pin stem to securely attach it when worn on a lapel, hat or scarf (see photo below).

Cost: $465

Measurements:  This 14kt gold stickpin is 2 9/16" long and weighs 2.8 grams.  The cruciform top is 5/8" by 5/8".
