Gorgeous bejeweled vintage brooch. This SPHINX citrine glass flower brooch features a central round cut citrine coloured crystal surrounded by 6 oval cut crystals in the same colour and six smaller topaz coloured round cut crystals. The glass is all claw set and have no foil backing but have a beautiful shine due to the lovely cuts. The gold plated metal does not really show at the front of the brooch. The back is a gold plated open design to allow the light through the stones. There is a Signed SPHINX cartouche. The rollover clasp is strong – the pin is well worn and the plating has worn off. This brooch is in very good vintage condition as it was made in the 1960s.
This is a gorgeous well made brooch.
The brooch weighs 31 grams and had a diameter of just under 5 cm. Presented in a satin drawstring bag.
