Perfume Button Set - 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 beautiful floral perfume button with burgundy tint has a gold flecked fabric peeking through the flower. A 1920's Mother of Pearl button adds the perfect touch. Found on the original card from Paris.
