Renee says: “Remarkable 1800’s era antique brass button and fresh water pearl, which I’ve set in sterling silver as petite pendant. I have polished the antique button to a high shine, so it actually looks more like a copper/rose gold. This is a petite piece which is perfect if you prefer smaller pieces. Works great with the pearls, chains or black cord as shown in photos for ultimate versatility. The image on the button is that of a Roman in headpiece/helmet, and the detail is wonderful. Scroll thru’ images for up close peek at another on of a kind treasure from the studio of RBD. Antique button pendants….treasures from a by gone era to cherish today!”

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 Many of these buttons have been given names, either when they were originally made or later as to identify them for collectors.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