Renee says: “Glorious 1800’s era Antique button which I’ve “Colour Washed” in shades of butterscotch and pumpkin. I then burnished/rubbed back to show delightful floral pattern of button. Set as always in solid sterling silver, I have also added a beautiful fresh water pearl. I am including the sterling silver chain as shown in the photos, which works perfectly with this piece. However, the pendant also looks great with a silver chain or cuff, pearls or leather cord. Scroll thru’ images for up close peek at a one of a kind treasure you will love!”

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 Many of these buttons have been given names, either when they were originally made or later as to identify them for collectors.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