Renee says: “I have “Colour Washed” this glorious Antique button in rich shades of purple and fuchsia, then rubbed back to show an “old world” effect. The “Colour Wash” technique allows me to add colour to an otherwise neutral button, in this case pewter. The button itself is from the 1800’s era with a lovely “old world” pattern- A true treasure from a bygone era. Set as always in solid sterling silver, this piece looks great on a silver cuff or chain, or the pearls as shown in photos. Scroll thru’ images for up close peek.”

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 Many of these buttons have been given names, either when they were originally made or later as to identify them for collectors.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