Renee says: “Beautiful detail in this antique button featuring a ship and lighthouse. Set in solid sterling silver with a lovely fresh water pearl, I classify this piece as a “Petite Pendant”, as it’s on the smaller side. The button has an “old world” black wash over it for added effect. The piece can easily be worn with chains, cuffs, black cords/leather or pearls as shown in photo. I am including the 18 inch silver chain with this piece. Antique Buttons…treasures from a bygone era to cherish today! Click on images for up close peek.”

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 Many of these buttons have been given names, either when they were originally made or later as to identify them for collectors.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