Renee says: “Charming 1800’s era Antique Button which I’ve “Colour Washed” in Aqua blue and green and burnished back to show pattern. Set as always in solid sterling silver, I have then added a beautiful fresh water pearl for added effect. This piece can be worn long or short, with a silver chain, pearls or the black cord as shown in photos. This pendant is a bit smaller than some that I create, I would classify it as a medium size piece. Antique button pendants….treasures from a by gone era to cherish today! See measurements for details.”

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 Many of these buttons have been given names, either when they were originally made or later as to identify them for collectors.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