Sphinx England Rhinestones Jeweled Figural Elephant Brooch Pin
$89.00 This exquisite pin features an elaborate mantle atop the elephant set with pave crystal rhinestones in red, green, purple, blue, topaz and crystal. A small coral bead dangles from his neck. The mental is bordered with a red metallic enamel surrounded by a scalloped edge set with opaque dark blue or black rhinestones. His tusks are white enamel, his eye is a tiny black rhinestone, and the top of his head is adorned with a red metallic enamel ‘cap’ surrounded by clear rhinestones. The gold tone is shiny and bright and he is signed on the reverse A9512, a recognizable lettering and numbers system often used by SPHINX. This is a marvelously detailed and quite dimensional brooch by SPHINX, a British company that produced high-end costume jewelry for themselves, and frequently for others, such as Kenneth Jay Lane and Butler & Wilson. The company went out of business in the late 90s and its jewelry is becoming increasingly collectible. This elephant pin brooch measures 2-1/8" tall and 1-1/8" long. A very special pin brooch by Sphinx that is scarce and hard to find. The pin is in excellent condition.
