Vintage Set of 5 Champleve Round Cut-Out Brass Buttons with Marcasite Centers, 15mm, early 1900's
Vintage early 1900's Brass Champleve Round Brass Buttons with Marcasite Blossom Centers, 15 mm across with a cutout scrolled center. These are beautifully enameled in red, blue, green, and light blue framing and a center slightly domed, with 6 blossom arranged marcasite accents. These are also listed as cloisonne and enameled however in this instance, the correct term is Champleve. Some of the marcasite stones do have typical vintage oxidation which can be cleaned/restored but they are still pretty nice as is. They are priced at $20.00 per button which is lower than the amounts I've seen. I've seen 6 offered through a website for $300.00. Can be broken down and sold in a smaller lot if desired. These are purported to be from the 1920's making them nearly 100 years old so they are not perfect but still very nice. Possibly French but not certain. Great PA estate find. Attached shank and that stable and sturdy. They are not signed. See photos.

Please note that most of my photos are taken at 10X magnification. This shows any blemishes much more magnified than they really are.
I keep great notes about each item and can answer most questions quickly, but I do not store fine jewelry on premises, so answers about specific measurements may take some time as I arrange to inspect the piece again.
In addition to this website, Maria's Vintage, I am on eBay as stampshopgirl, on Etsy as stampshopgirl, and on StorEnvy as Maria's. I have many vintage jewelry items and other vintage and new items - a very wide variety.
I will combine shipping, even if you buy items from one of my other stores. If you purchase one item and know you’ll be picking more, just email me and let me know and I will ship them at the same time and refund the shipping over the combined limit.
Given the number of different items I carry it is hard to know what combination of items can be purchased to pre-plan the shipping, so just email me and we will work it out to save you shipping charges whenever possible.
