Renee says: “Remarkable 1800’s era antique brass button, which I’ve set in sterling silver locket. This lovely piece can be worn with a silver or gold chain, leather cord or pearls for ultimate versatility. (I am including the sterling silver chain as shown in photos.) I love the filigree pattern on the button which is a very “old world” classic look. I consider this a smaller-medium size button piece. A glorious pendant that you will wear and treasure for years to come, I call these pieces “Wearable History.” Scroll thru’ images for up close peek.”
Length: 1 inch 25.4 mm See photo of pendant next to Australian .20 cent coin for size reference.
Includes sterling silver chain as shown in photos. Note: I have perminatly fastened the button in the locket.

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 Many of these buttons have been given names, either when they were originally made or later as to identify them for collectors.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