Antique Perfume Button Necklace No. 3 - Green Bow

52.00

Antique perfume buttons date back to the 1700's, when fragrances were too heavy to wear on the skin and clothing. Women would dab their fragrance onto the fabric of the buttons and enjoy perfumes without staining or irritation. The designs of perfume buttons were very intricate, often using thick woven fabrics and velvet.

The history of these beauties is something I have always found intriguing, from the romanticism of women handing them off to their loved ones before battle to remind them of home, and how the majority of these types of buttons were coveted once they fell out of popularity.

The button here is a beautiful deep green velvet, with a beautiful bow detail. The button itself measures 1" and is accented with antique French rosary beads. Hung from NOS 1970'S brass chain. Total Necklace length is 18" and has a 1" extender chain. Closes with a lobster clasp.
