These are Original French Incroyables and Merveilleuses Bronze buttons.

These are circa 1880 when there was a revival of those wild French revolution days.

It must have been an incredible period of only four years when the legend of the Incroyables and Merveilleuses was created in the late 18C. I suppose the relief of having survived The Terror of the revolution when even the Queen was beheaded was the reason for the 'anything goes' celebration. These buttons reflect the style and the new sense of freedom between the sexes. The bit I find intriguing is the hair style of the men. They wore it pinned up with a comb at the back imitating those on their way to the guillotine.

These are original buttons and a complete set of six. The diameter is 1 inch.
