Renee says: "Although the feature button on this pendant looks like an old roman coin, rest assured it's actually a vintage Italian button from the 1940's era. I have "Colour Washed" the button in rich, deep fuchsia then rubbed back to show the design. I added a beautiful fresh water pearl to the piece, and set as always in sterling silver. This piece looks great on a gold or silver chain or pearls as shown-Remarkably versatile. Click on images for up close peek at this remarkable pendant."

Antique “Picture Buttons”
Making their appearance in the mid 1800’s era, “Picture Buttons” became fashionable by the late 1870’s and were made until about the 1920’s. Most were manufactured in Europe by master craftsmen and are remarkably beautiful and well made. A “Picture Button” is metal, sometimes a combination of metals such as steel, silver, copper or brass. Many of these buttons have been given names, either when they were originally made or later as to identify them for collectors. Many “Picture Buttons” feature designs that depict fables, myths, operas, scenes or popular items of the era. “Picture Buttons” are true miniature treasures from a bygone era.”
