Renee says: “I love the detailed image on this 1800’s era antique button-Tropical pagoda with palm trees, which I’ve “Colour Washed” in Fuchsia & Lavender for added effect. This “Colour Wash” techniques allows me to add colour to the button, then burnish/rub back for an old world effect. I have added a soft Peach coloured fresh water pearl. I have shown this with a grey cord, but this pendant also looks great with pearls, silver chain or cuff. I classify this as a statement piece, due to the size and just the overall “WOW” of the piece. Antique button pendants….treasures from a bygone era to cherish today. Scroll thru’ images for up close peek at this delightful one of a kind piece.”

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 Many of these buttons have been given names, either when they were originally made or later as to identify them for collectors.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