Brooch - Hand-Painted Porcelain & Mother Of Pearl Buttons - Handmade in USA

Je Me Souviens Brooch - Holiday

Contrasting vividly colored floral porcelains and luminous white mother-of-pearl buttons are some of our favorite button pairings. This brooch flaunts this combination perfectly making it truly unforgettable.

Most antique porcelain buttons were hand-painted by well-bred Victorian women in their parlors as an artistic hobby. While our mothers may have done needlework or crocheted blankets, their mothers might have painted floral patterns on porcelain buttons.
