Stickpin for a Wine Lover

Brassler Bacchus and amethyst stickpin. (J9098)


A rich purple amethyst framed by outward facing images of Bacchus, the God of Wine.  The ancient Greeks believed amethyst protected a wine drinker from intoxication.  So, this is the perfect jewel for your next Bacchanalian revel or more sedate wine tasting. Crafted in 14kt gold circa 1910.

The figures are beautifully sculpted.  The rich patina of the gold throws the details into high relief.  This stickpin was created by The Brassler Company.  Hans Brassler was a gifted jeweler known for the originality and artistry of his work.  Trained in Paris, Brassler's creations earned a gold medal at the 1900 Exposition Universelle.

Beautifully crafted, the stickpin is secured with a sturdy gold pin stem attached to the back.  The maker's mark of The Brassler Company is stamped in the lower right corner of the reverse. 

Cost:  Although this elegant stickpin has sold,  you will find many more beautiful stickpins in the Antique Stickpin Gallery.

Measurements:  This 14kt gold stickpin is 2 3/4" long and weighs 4.4 grams.  The top measures  3/4" by  just under 9/16".
