Renee says: “Beautiful, indeed! I have coupled the 1800’s era brass button with a classic fresh water pearl and set in sterling silver as a feature pendant. I have shown this delightful piece on the black leather cord (which is included), but it also looks great with a silver chain, cuff or pearls. I have “Colour Washed” the button in deep green, then rubbed/burnished back to achieve an old world patina. This is a timeless piece that will never date or go out of style, one you will reach for over and over. Vintage button pendants...treasures from a by gone era to cherish today!

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 Many of these buttons have been given names, either when they were originally made or later as to identify them for collectors.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