This is a top quality piece of vintage British designer jewellery - it dates from about the early 1970s.
It was made by Adrian Mann, London and takes the form of an Egyptian sphinx.
A nice larger size piece - measuring some just under 2 1/4 inches in length (5.5 cm)
It is a lovely shiny gold tone colour - and in exceptional vintage condition.
The company was famed for its upmarket costume jewellery and it featured in many photo-shoots in top glamour magazines in the 1960s and 70s.
