In the time when all design was about elegance and grace no detail was ever overlooked right down to the call buttons on the elevator. Made of black porcelain and chromed brass surrounding a button pad made of a fine piece of mother of pearl. These buttons can be put to use to this day with a bit of wiring and electrical know-how.

Being over a hundred years old, these buttons are in excellent condition. There is some corrosion on the metal flange surrounding the button face but this can be cleaned and oiled to prevent it returning, or paint it a bright chrome with a spritz of spray paint. These buttons have so much potential!

Each measures 1" across as pictured. We have several lots of these buttons and all are the same size

Returns and exchange details

Due to the nature of vintage items being used, we cannot guarantee that any item will be in perfect working condition. Oftentimes vintage items need a bit more creativity to operate than a brand new item and can have unique quirks like a stiff button, or wiggly latch. We do our best to thoroughly test and describe the condition of every item we sell.
Returns will be handled on a case by case basis, and partial refunds will not be given under any circumstances.

Returns must be shipped back at customer's expense and original purchase and shipping will be refunded after a case is opened with Canada Post.
