We love our 18K exceptional hunting fob with a working hinged locket and a jasper and agate base. " Punto di Caccia" in Italian is engraved on one lozenge, translating to "hunting point", and "Rendez vous de chasse" written on another lozenge opposite. Rendez Vous de chasse roughly translates to "appointment for the hunt". The hunting dog stands faithfully to one side along with the horn, and rifle & hunting pouch, also known as a bullet pouch, with hip flask on other side. All the essentials needed for a fruitful hunting expedition are at the ready. The fob has a very small French eagle's head on the round ring structure that sits beneath the "Rendez Vous de Chasse" lozenge. The hinged container opens and securely holds any number of things- snuff, pills, etc., and is approximately 1/8 inch deep on the inside. The fob is in perfect condition.
