1 in stock

Renee says: “A most remarkable and unique Antique Button from the 1800’s era, which I’ve “Colour Washed”  in rich shades of fushia/hot pink, then burnished back to show design. Set in solid sterling silver, this is a most beautiful pendant. The design/pattern is of a child with an umbrella and the detail is superb. The “Colour Wash” technique that I apply to some of my pieces, allows me to colour the Antique Buttons and then burnish/rub back to show pattern. I have shown this lovely pendant on with a silver and gold chain, but it also works with pearls. Antique button pendants…treasures from a bygone era to cherish today. Scroll thru’ images for up close peek at a pendant I guarantee you will love 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 Many of these buttons have been given names, either when they were originally made or later as to identify them for collectors.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.

Rave Review:

Hi Renee, Thanks for my button earrings received today in cold, wet, old Melbourne but they certainly brightened my day on their arrival! They are just perfect, and yes you are correct, even better in real life. They looked great on your recent video and I am thrilled with them. Many thanks, Anndrea
