We named these earrings Nouveau Chapeau in honor of the charming straw bonnets featured on their antique stamped brass buttons.
The bonnet's rims are sweetly adorned with Art Nouveau-style pansies and swirling ribbons. We were over the moon to find eighteen of these special buttons still attached to their original century-plus-year-old store card.
In this piece:
Stamped brass straw hat buttons, 1/2” in diameter, circa 1900
