The British company Sphinx made this lovely and dimensional fantasy bird sitting on a branch with its long tail feathers. It has bright textured gold-tone chest feathers and a deep blue enameled head, back and some tail feathers, along with green enameled tail feathers and branch. Some of the feathers have pave' set clear rhinestones and the bird has an emerald-green rhinestone eye.
The brooch measures 3" long x approximately 1-1/2" wide and is signed "Sphinx" along with the number "A2385" on the reverse, which is a design number according to the site, Researching Costume Jewelry.
It is in excellent condition with all rhinestones sparkling, enamel and plating intact and the pin mechanism working correctly.
