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.
