Traditional Mortgage Buttons

Product Description

Antique ivory is hand turned to create these reproduction mortgage buttons. Each is distinctly different, patterned after the simple styles of the traditional Nantucket mortgage buttons. Sized from 3/4 in diam. May be personalized with monogram or date. Priced from $195.00, depending on size and style of turnings. Please call to discuss your preference.

Mortgage buttons are an old Nantucket tradition. When a mortgage was paid off, the note was ceremonially burned, the ashes put into the newell post and the ivory button was then mounted atop the post.
