Renee says: “A glorious European Antique Brass button from the mid 1800’s with a deep ruby red crystal in the centre, which I’ve set in solid sterling silver as feature piece. I am showing this on a black cuff/collar and a gold chain, but it also works beautifully on a silver chain or cuff for maximum versatility. If you love a classy “old world” look, and enjoy a true statement pendant, this is the one! Scroll thru’ the images for up close peek at a treasure you will love and wear for years to come!”
Length: 2.5 inches 63.5 mm See photo of pendant next to Australian 1.00 coin for size reference.

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 Many of these buttons have been given names, either when they were originally made or later as to identify them for collectors.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