Perfume Button Necklace - 1860's Civil War Era
Authentic 1860’s French perfume button. Perfume buttons have an underlay of fabric with a pierced, ornate overlay. During the Civil war period, the women would dab their oil based perfumes on their fabric buttons. Their buttons were given to loved ones as they went off to war as a reminder of them.
This exquisite star perfume button has a soft brown velvet fabric peeking through the star. A 1920's iridescent mother of pearl button adds to the charm.
