Renee says: “ I have “Colour Washed” this 1800’s era antique button in deep green & blue, then rubbed/burnished back to achieve an old world patina. This “Colour Wash” technique allows me to add colour to these buttons, which is such a delight! This is a smaller, lighter pendant (see dimensions below)-Perfect if you like my pendants, but prefer smaller pieces. This is a timeless pendant, that will never date or go out of style. I am also including the sterling silver chain, as shown in the photos. Antique button pendants...treasures from a by gone era to cherish today! Scroll thru’ images for up close peek.

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 Many of these buttons have been given names, either when they were originally made or later as to identify them for collectors.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