Renee says: “I have “Colour Washed” this “Girl with Umbrella” Antique button in rich shades of aqua green and blue, then burnished/rubbed back for an old world patina. Set as always in solid sterling silver, this piece looks great with a silver chain, cuff, or pearls as shown in photos. The detail on this 1800’s era button is remarkable and utterly charming. I never tire of working and creating with these glorious buttons, which I consider treasures from a by gone era. If you like what you see in the photos, you will love this pendant for real! Scroll thru’ images for up close peek.”

Absolutely amazing jewellery with a uniqueness of its own, showcasing the talent and warmth of the creator, Renee. I have several of her pieces already and wait anxiously for new photos of pieces for sale. Kathleen
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 Many of these buttons have been given names, either when they were originally made or later as to identify them for collectors.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.
