Vintage Gold Tone Cloisonne/Enameled Pendant marked International Order of L'Ordre Mondial Des Bons Vivants. It has a tavern board shape with scrolled tops and bottoms and then an overlay on the background with a green enameled background and a white wine bottle, fish, and moose head. The pendant is 2" long and about 1-1/3" wide. It has a 30 heavy curb link chain that it is attached too with a ribbed flip-over wide clasp. I could not find another one like this but there is a group or magazine (it's always in French so I cannot read) having to do with wine and culinary activities that I have found linked to this name. I am not sure if it was something from participating in something or just something you could buy. With food competitions and tastings being quite fashionable these days, this is appealing to food junkie. I used to do the team cooking for a minor league baseball team for pretty many years and I'm naturally drawn to these types of things. I hope it finds a good home. I found this at a Pennsylvania estate sale. Very good condition. No wear or finish changes.

I keep great notes about each item and can answer most questions quickly, but I do not store fine jewelry on premises, so answers about specific measurements may take some time as I arrange to inspect the piece again.
