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.

An 1860's diamond pattern perfume button is the focal point on this necklace. Rich brown velvet is the center of the button. It has a silver dotted liner peeking through the edge to show some sparkle. A 1920's mother of pearl button adds to the charm. Exquisite.

Pendant: 1 3/4" long x 3/4" wide

Antique silver finish chain:    18" with a 3" extender
