Renee says: “I love working with the amazing European buttons from the 1800’s era! I sourced this particular treasure at the “International Button Festival” which takes place every year in the USA. The button collector I purchased it from was French and she had such an exquisite collection, but this was my favourite. I have set as always in solid sterling silver as a feature piece. It can easily be worn on a gold or silver chain, the black cuff or pearls for ultimate versatility. It is a classy, timeless treasure I guarantee you will love as much as I do! Scroll thru’ 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 Many of these buttons have been given names, either when they were originally made or later as to identify them for collectors.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.
