Sphinx was an English company that started manufacture around 1948 and ceased in the 90s. Based in London, UK the company produced high end pieces for their brand worldwide and also for others such as Butler & Wilson. Most of their jewellery is marked with the Sphinx logo, however some only have the model number stamped.
Here is a swan brooch which dates from around the 70s, a beautiful and elegant modernist brooch. The swan is in gold colour with open wings design, elaborate detailing and very realistic, this would make a great gift for the loved one. The brooch is stamped 1586 which is the model number attributed to Sphinx, from the 60s or 70s they all have design numbers attributed to them. The brooch is used and in good condition overall, however as can be noted from the photos it does have oxidation.
