Filigree Buttons – The word filigree is derived from the Latin word “filum” (meaning thread). It is ornamental openwork of delicate or intricate design.

Filigree suggests ‘lace’ in its design. It has a very specific feminine look since 1660 to present. Every year the filigree look is somewhere in fashion!

These button examples are in vintage and antique metal and plastic. So beautiful!
