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.
A fabulous moon and star perfume button with gold flecked fabric peeking through is the highlight of this necklace. A 1920's iridescent mother of pearl button adds the perfect touch. Perfect for everyday wear.
