Key Escutcheons

Key hole covers, or escutcheons, are an important finishing touch for any old door. You might be looking for something to match a missing item in your historic home or want to create a set with your own unique choice of door plates, key hole escutcheons and latches. If you are looking for a replacement or creating your own set, please pay attention to the measurements. You wouldn't want to buy a large key hole escutcheon and then find out that it runs into your antique rosette! If you are ordering a set I will check them before completing the order.

Note: If the description is plural (covers/escutcheons) I have between 2 & 4 available - sold individually. If I state Several I have more than 5 available. Click on the product to find out how many. Singular or Pair are self explanatory.
