Renee says: “By far, one of my most favourite antique buttons I’ve worked with! Antique 1800’s era brass European button, which I’ve set in solid sterling silver. I have added a beautiful “ButterScotch” coloured crystal for added shine and bling. This piece can be easily be worn with a gold or silver chain, black cuff or pearls for ultimate flexibility. A fun, yet classy piece you will cherish and wear for years to come! Scroll thru’ images for up close peek.”

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 Many of these buttons have been given names, either when they were originally made or later as to identify them for collectors.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