    This was given to me today by my mother. It has been in the family for quite some time now. the chain is 24" 18k gold and the pendant is surrounded by gold and has a hand painted enameled portrait on it. (Not a crack or a scratch to the enamel either)!!! The back of the pendant is signed F. Bicnycnu, Limoges? Can anyone help with this I have Googled the name and came up with nothing!! It is a beautiful item, That I will be seeking an antique jeweler to appraise it.
    Thank you

      That would be F Bienvenu.
      But I have no info, just a teacher's eye to read handwriting...
