Victorian perfume buttons now adorn gold filled wires to create these one of a kind earrings.
Victorian perfumes were oil based, burning the skin and staining clothes, so perfume buttons were used by dabbing perfume on the button's velvet center. It was not uncommon to have over 100 buttons per garment!!!!
earring length 1 1/2 inches
button earrings are ridiculously light!
#tellanewstory In 1882 Missy Dior had the brilliant marketing idea to sell these perfume buttons in sets of 24 with her signature sandalwood, rose and patchouli scent.
