Today I'm going to share some little antique buttons that I adore. Many of these little guys are called picture buttons and date from the late 1800s to the early 1900s. Some have, or had, fabric seated behind the "picture" onto which I'm sure the fashionable ladies dabbed their favorite perfumes. I think these are especially cool just because the designs are so intricate for something so small. These are about 1/2" across.
These are all in my "keep" bin.
This blue one still has some fabric.
This one is amazing. It's a castle with a maiden sitting on a bridge. (click the photo to see it a little bigger)
