This high relief pendant with pin back was made by the Sphynx Jewelry Co. in England sometime between 1948 – 2000 when they ceased operations. It depicts the head of Medusa with her snake hair in wonderful highly sculptural relief on a basically circular background. She measures 2 1/8T X 1 3/4" W including the bale for the pendant. The item looks to be either a very good gold toned metal or perhaps gold electroplated. It is marked with the company name, SPHYNX, within an oval and the letters B.M. (which may be for the British Museum). This is a very well done pendant and could be worn on a silk or leather cord by either a woman or a man based on its size and presence. Very good looking!
