Sphinx round marcasite brooch in silver tone metal. Good vintage condition. Sphinx jewellery is known to be very high quality. Marked Sphinx on the back in an oval shape. Sturdy two pronged roll over safety catch. The pin has lost its coating and is a bit bent but provides a secure fastening. The design is etched into the metal creating a brushed finish daisy with tiny marcasite stones making the centre of the flower and around the edges. Sphinx made a lot of brooches with this etched style and the shine it creates is very eyecatching. There is some slight discolouration on the front when viewed closely but this does not show when worn.
Probably made in the 1960s
Presented in a satin drawstring bag
Measurements 40mm diameter
