Jugendstil Brooch by Carl Braun*

Item Description

Extremely rare German Jugendstil brooch designed and made by Carl Braun circa 1910-13.

Square in outline and crafted in silver on to which is mounted a shaped and polished plaque of grey coloured chalcedony with a circular aperture in the centre.

The main focal point within is a gold plated vase containing a colourful display of flowers and leaves set with numerous faceted rubies and emeralds. 

Further detail is in the form of a finely detailed silver border just inside the outer edge of the brooch and an even finer rope-patterned silver ring circling the vase of flowers.

The merest touch over 3.5 cm wide and in excellent condition commensurate with the age.   

No maker’s mark but a belt buckle by Carl Braun with a very similar design to this brooch is illustrated on page 176 of the book ‘Schmuck in Deutschland und Österreich’ by Ulrike von Hase.
