please see my photos as they are part of my description of the details of the colours, design and general condition of this fine piece of vintage jewellery.
The brooch is marked with the oval sphinx mark near the center back on the bar sections.
British company Sphinx made high quality jewellery. They made jewellery for many famous design houses, like Kenneth J. Lane, Saks Fifth Avenue, Butler & Wilson Neimans, and Bloomingdales and others. I understand and also heard Designer Henry Schreiner of Schreiner Jewellery Co which began in 1939 also designed for Sphinx.
