Renee says: “Remarkable 1800’s era antique brass button, which I’ve set in sterling silver as statement pendant. This lovely piece can be worn so many ways-With a silver or gold chain, or cuff/collar or with pearls as shown in photos. I love the pattern/image on the button-Very “old world” and traditional. A glorious pendant that you will wear for years to come. Antique button pendants...treasures from a bygone era to cherish today! Scroll thru’ images for up close peek.

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 Many of these buttons have been given names, either when they were originally made or later as to identify them for collectors.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