Hans Brassler Star Brooch

Hans Brassler star brooch. (J9329)

Shining Star



A beautiful amethyst rests in the center of an eight-ray star illuminated with small pearls.  Between the rays of the star are eight fleurs de lys also decorated with shimmering pearls.  A finely crafted pendant-brooch created by Hans Brassler in 14kt gold, circa 1910.

The reverse of the brooch is as beautifully crafted as the front.  The gold back is closed to give strength to the design and protect the small pearls.  A sturdy pin stem and early safety clasp secure the jewel on a jacket lapel,  blouse or hat.  Above the pin stem is a hinged bale which allows the star to be suspended from a small chain and worn as a pendant.

The maker's mark of Hans Brassler ("14B" inside a double oval) is stamped on the top of the clasp.  Hans Brassler was a uniquely imaginative jeweler who for a few short years in the early 20th century created wonderfully original brooches, stickpins and other jewels.
