Renee says: “I have “Colour Washed” this glorious Antique button in rich shades of green, gold, black and chocolate, then rubbed back for an “old world” effect. The “Colour Wash” technique allows me to add colour to a brass button for depth and colour. This button from the 1800’s era with a lovely “old world” coat of arts image is among my favourite pieces. I have added a lovely fresh water pearl for added beauty and bling. Set as always in solid sterling silver, this piece looks great on a silver cuff or chain or the dark brown cord/necklace shown in the photos. (I am including this with the piece.) A true treasure from a by gone era. 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 Many of these buttons have been given names, either when they were originally made or later as to identify them for collectors.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.
