    193Os FRENCH PILOT SWEETHEART PENDANT?

    this pendant has a french 1930s (?) pilot badge engraved on one side, a winged tricoleur on the other. the enamel speed lines make me thing 'art deco.' it is heavy (silver or nickel plate I reckon) with a 'beehive' mark on the back with writing next to it I cant read - maybe 'P ... 96' strangely the shape esp. the top resembles a ... toilet seat!

    please help with an ID. many thanks.

    Ok got close with a loupe and the 'bee hive' might be a bell - whatever, it's flanked either side by a hatchet and a knife. So i guess the make produced implements.... Still like to know what the devil it is; hope someone can help.

    The style/design of the logo and the enamel look too modern to me
    to be that early. I'd say somewhere in the 70's or 80's............

    It is definitely the French Airforce - 'Armee de l'air' - logo !

    Sometimes there are 'inside' jokes between pilots or aircrew - in the same way
    that pilots aquire nicknames - it can be something related to their name
    or a saying one might use. So it could very well be the lid of a toilet,
    and this charm/fob was then made up as a token of the event.

    No idea as to it's meaning or value though. You would need
    to talk to a member of the French Airforce............!
