VINTAGE BICYCLE Antique Button Necklace - GOLD
This antique button necklace features the glorious penny farthing or hi-ride bicycle, invented in 1869 and popular until the 1880s when the modern "safety bicycle" was invented. Though the Penny Farthing craze was relatively short lived, this endearing invention symbolizes both the birth of cycling as a sport and the beginning of women's liberation. Cast in bronze from one of the original Victorian buttons from our collection, this whimsical button is great for cyclists, historians, travelers and adventurers.
