About Escutcheon

Dressing up your home can mean going back to times gone by and using architectural elements that are not as common these days. An escutcheon is a piece of hardware that surrounds a keyhole or sometimes other fixtures. Often, there is also a decorative cover that slides over the keyhole itself. If you are hoping to create a traditional, Victorian effect, then a brass escutcheon is what you need. While you can go with a bright, shiny brass piece, there are other styles that have a little more character. Oil-rubbed brass takes on a darker look, and really brings out the deeper hues in the metal. For a more formal look, consider a porcelain escutcheon. In the bath, this means porcelain accents around the fixtures, but if you are looking for keyhole escutcheons, you can find some with hand-painted accents that really dress up any room. No matter what style of escutcheon you need, the reliable sellers on eBay have the variety and the quality to help you dress up your home.
