FLOCK TOGETHER Antique Button Necklace - Bronze
This antique button necklace features a group of birds gathered on the telephone wires - capturing a moment of stillness before they all take flight again. Cast in sterling silver or bronze from a vintage Victorian button from our collection, the original dates to the late 1800s, not long after the invention of the telephone and electric light. After Thomas Edison popularized the electric lightbulb and Alexander Graham Bell brought the telephone into the home, the overhead wires, often along the train tracks, became a familiar part of the American landscape. This button pictures the perfect contrast of nature and human creativity and a perfect keepsake or love token.
