Antique Picture Button Necklace - Teal Cattails and Waterlilies

Antique picture buttons we once highly coveted in the 1800's, where they depict children, flowers, opera scenes, fables, animals and plays. They were mainly used as clothing decor but became collectible when their popularity waned as the 20th century brought a whole new era of button styles and popularity.

Here I've taken a beautiful antique picture button depicting a riverbank scene with the most intricate teal enamel pressing of cattails and water lilies. Accented with antique French rosary beads. The button itself is a delicate 1/2", in excellent weathered antique condition and necklace measures a little shy of 17". Closes with a lobster clasp, length adjustments available per request.
