This is a decadent Maltese Cross rhinestone vintage brooch made by Sphinx of England. The brooch features a large red cabochon in the middle with teardrop shaped and round rhinestones in a rich colour combination of red, blue, purple and green set in gold tone metal. The brooch is signed SPHINX on a small oval cartouche on the back and the patent number is stamped on the back (9242). Sphinx opened in England in 1948 and closed its door in the late 1990s. I would date this piece to the 1960-70s.

Measures 2-1/4 inches in diameter. The roll over clasp is secure when worn. All stones are present and clean. There are a few aged glue spots on the back where the rhinestones were attached to the metal during the manufacture of this brooch, only visible on the back. There is a very tiny nick in the red cabochon which is visible under high magnification. There is some wear to the gold tone finish on the edges at the back visible under magnification in the photos. None of these factors take away from the beauty of the brooch when worn, as evidenced by my close up photos. The brooch is spectacular.

A decadent vintage brooch made by a collectible costume jewelry company in England. The combination of colours make this brooch perfect for a burst of colour on a dress or blazer. Looks so rich and fantastic worn on black outfits.
