Dandelion, Antique Button(c.1800's) Earrings with Freshwater Pearls

A simply magnificent pair of tinted and etched pewter antique buttons. These buttons are from the late 1800's and are very hard to find in matching sets.

I have set the button in a silver plated filigree and the shank on the button has not been disturbed so that it will retain is value as a collectible. To the bottom of this I have added freshwater pearls with a Czech glass flower and silver filigree. The earring and filigree measure 3/4" across. The total earring measures 2" from top to bottom.
