Bethlehem pearl Christmas Tree button

Bethlehem pearls-a souvenir and export item of long standing in the Holy Land-were made as both buttons and brooches. Traditionally round, some were realistically shaped. Most of these buttons were imported by American dealers from the 1940’ to 60’s, but they have again been available in recent years. The earlier examples were usually well-designed and carved; the quality seemed to deteriorate over the years. This button is a heavy large pearl with handsomely carved branches and ornaments
