Antique Button Necklace - Steel and Gold Star Design - Victorian Brass Button Pendant - 1870-1910

This genuine Victorian button necklace features an intricately detailed cut steel antique button with an eye-catching contrast of hematite colored steel and brass relief patterning! Set on an antiqued brass filigree pendant, this delicate and detailed cut steel button. This button dates between 1870 and 1910.

Jewelry of the early Victorian era reflected the romantic notions of the young queen’s courtship and marriage. Love tokens, travel charms and other symbol-laden, sentiment-infused jewelry was popular from 1830 to the turn of the century. Mass production methods in the 1800s popularized steel picture buttons, used on women and children’s clothing from the 1860s into the Edwardian era. Victorian pictures buttons, often with multiple layers, featured detailed botanical designs and scenes from European fairy tales as well as Classical art and mythology.

* Nickel-free brass chain measures approximately 21-22"
* The pendant is 1.25" across.
* All items come in a gift box.
