Gilt and pale blue enamel cross pattée with green enamel wreath between the arms and with eyelet and decorated loop for ribbon suspension; the face with a circular central gilt medallion imposed with the haloed radiant head and shoulders of a saint, a staff in his left hand, the left, upper, right and lower arms inscribed in gilt letters ‘ISTEN’ ‘ÁLDJA’ ‘A TISZTES’ ‘IPART’ respectively; the reverse plain; diameter 46.31mm (1.82 inches); lacking ribbon. Isten Áldja a Tisztes Ipart was a Catholic organisation founded in 1886 to promote and recognise artisan crafts and skills. It was disbanded in 1949 by the Communist regime but has been revived in recent years. An impressive piece.
