Renee says: “I classify these remarkable antique buttons as true old world treasures from a bygone era. The button in this piece is brass from the mid-1800’s era, with a beautiful image of basket full of flowers. Set as always in solid sterling silver, this piece can be worn on a silver or gold chain, pearls or silver/pewter coloured collar as shown in photo. I have “Colour Washed” the button in rich shades of deep aqua blue, then burnished/ rubbed back for an old world, worn look. A glorious pendant to wear and treasure for years to come. Scroll thru’ images for up close peek.”

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 Many of these buttons have been given names, either when they were originally made or later as to identify them for collectors.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