Renee says: “I was thrilled when I found this delightful cherub with umbrella brass button, and knew it would make a beautiful pendant. The detail on the button is remarkable and utterly charming. I have “Colour Washed” the button in deep shades of pink & fuchsia, then rubbed back to achieve an “old world” patina.Set in solid sterling silver, this piece looks great worn with a gold or silver chain, cuff or even pearls for ultimate versatility. (I am including the black cord as shown in the photos, as this looks great with the pendant.) Antique button pendants…treasures from a bygone era to cherish today. Scroll thru’ images for up close peek at a most fabulous piece you will cherish and wear for years to come.”

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 Many of these buttons have been given names, either when they were originally made or later as to identify them for collectors.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