We come across a pair of large French enamel and filigree buttons like these at most once a year. Our owner, Susan, has had a pair for 20 years that she wears weekly, and refuses to sell to anyone! These have a really unusual construction (if fact we’ve never seen it before): A champleve’ enamel and cut steel center in cranberry, taupe and green; a stamped aluminum ring (aluminum was a new material for jewelry at the time and was more expensive than silver); and a stamped brass filigree border. We are having a hard time letting these go!
- Earring diameter is 1 ½ inches and length is 2 ½ inches.
