Renee says: “A unique Antique Button from the 1800’s era, which I’ve “Colour Washed” in rich shades of rusty brick red and butterscotch, then burnished back to show design. The “Colour Wash” technique allows me to colour the Antique Buttons and then burnish/rub back to show pattern. I have shown this lovely pendant on the dark brown/chocolate cord, which I am including, but this piece also works with a silver chain. Set in solid sterling silver, I have added a lovely fresh water pearl for added effect. 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 Many of these buttons have been given names, either when they were originally made or later as to identify them for collectors.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.
