Renee says: “I have “Colour Washed” this lovely Antique Italian button in rich blues and greens, then burnished back to show the woven pattern. Set as always in solid sterling silver, I added a lovely “Champagne” fresh water pearl, resulting in a classic Renee Blackwell Design treasure. I have shown this on the black cuff/collar and a sterling chain, but it also looks great worn on a pearl strand. Antique button pendants…treasures from a bygone era to cherish today!

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 Many of these buttons have been given names, either when they were originally made or later as to identify them for collectors.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