Renee says: “Working with the amazing Antique buttons is a true joy for me! These are without a doubt “treasures from a bygone era”. This pendant features a Lion and Shield image on the brass button. I have treated this button with a “Colour Wash” technique adding rich hues of gold and plumb/red for added interest and depth. Set as always in solid sterling silver. This pendant works with a gold or silver chain or pearls for added versatility. Scroll thru’ images of one of my all time favourite pieces!”

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 Many of these buttons have been given names, either when they were originally made or later as to identify them for collectors.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.
