Renee says: “Stunning, indeed! This is a larger, statement pendant featuring an antique pewter button with delightful “Two Birds in Tree” design. Set as always in solid sterling silver, this piece looks great worn with a silver chain, cuff, pearls or the silver/grey cord as shown in the photos. (I am including this cord with the piece, as it works so well!) The birds, tree and leaves are all very detailed on this button, which is such a remarkable and unique piece. Antique button pendants…treasures from a by gone era to cherish today. 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 Many of these buttons have been given names, either when they were originally made or later as to identify them for collectors.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.

“As a fashion and style blogger, nothing excites me more than discovering designers doing amazingly creative things. And when those “things” are stunning accessories that make a woman feel good every time they wear them, then that’s a winning combination. That’s what I love about Reneé Blackwell’s pieces.” Nikki Parkinson
