Hans Brassler Citrine Brooch
Citrine and Roses
|| A lemony citrine set between golden roses and
bright, luminous pearls. Around 1910 Hans Brassler created
a series of small brooches featuring roses blooming on a
wire "trellis" with accenting pearls. This jewel set with
a citrine is a particularly cheerful example. Crafted in
14kt gold, circa 1910.
The reverse of the brooch is almost as beautiful as the front. Note the crispness and fine details of the craftsmanship/design. Sturdy frames support the citrine and pearls and are connected by the golden trellis. Lastly, when worn the brooch is secured with a strong pin stem and safety clasp.
Hans Brassler was an imaginative jeweler, designer and goldsmith who for a few years in the early 1900s created a wonderful collection of distinctive jewels. His work is known for its striking originality and uncompromising craftsmanship. The maker's mark of Hans Brassler - "14B" inside a double oval - is stamped on the lobe beneath the lower pearl.
