Renee says: “Remarkable 1800’s era button set in sterling silver as “Renée’s pick of the week!”  This brass button features a highly detailed Egyptian image, which I’ve “Colour Washed” in rich shades of green, golden yellow & rusty brown, then burnished to achieve an old world patina. This is without a doubt one of the most beloved antique buttons I’ve used to create a pendant, and guarantee you will love it as much as I do! Treasures from a by gone era to cherish today. Scroll thru’ images for up close peek.”

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 Many of these buttons have been given names, either when they were originally made or later as to identify them for collectors.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