Pretty vintage brooch. This SPHINX marcasite feather brooch is very delicate and probably dates from the 50s or 60s. The brooch is in the shiny silver style rather than the dark style of marcasite brooch. It is in very good condition and the stylised feather design is studded with shiny marcasite stones.
The clasp is well made and features a rollover clasp. It is not missing any marcasite stones. On the back of the brooch is the SPHINX cartouche signature.
This is a lovely timeless design and a light open brooch.
The brooch weighs only 9 grams. It measures just under 5 x 2.5(at it’s widest) cm. Presented in a beautiful satin drawstring bag.
Sphinx is a British company 1948 – late 1990s and is quite collectable.
