Renee says: “A remarkable vintage Italian button from the 1940’s era, which has a beautifully detailed anchor image. Set as always in solid sterling silver I have added a soft peachy fresh water pearl for added effect. This piece works great with a gold or silver chain or cuff, pearls or a rope cord for versatility. Although the button itself is brass, it has a gold tone look, making it perfect if you like to mix your gold and sulver jewellery. Vintage button pendants…treasures from a bygone era to cherish today. Scroll thru’ images for up close peek at this one of a kind piece by Renee…that’s me!”

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 Many of these buttons have been given names, either when they were originally made or later as to identify them for collectors.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