Renee says: “I have coupled a remarkable 1800’s era Antique Button with a glorious fresh water pearl, to create a most lovely pendant. Set as always in solid sterling silver, this piece works well with a silver chain, pearls or black cord for ultimate versatility. The detail on the button is superb, a floral pattern/design with lovely butterfly. This pendant is timeless and one you will reach for over and over, never dating or going out of style. I classify this as a medium sized pendant, see dimensions below. Antique button pendants…..treasures from a by gone era to cherish today!”

Length: 2 inches   50.8 mm   See photo of pendant next to Australian .20 cent coin for size reference.

Does not include chain or pearls as shown in photo.

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 Many of these buttons have been given names, either when they were originally made or later as to identify them for collectors.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

Rave Review:

Hi Renee, Thanks for my button earrings received today in cold, wet, old Melbourne but they certainly brightened my day on their arrival! They are just perfect, and yes you are correct, even better in real life. They looked great on your recent video and I am thrilled with them. Many thanks, Anndrea
