Turn a keyhole into a decorative and attractive facet with brass escutcheons. In simple yet eye-catching or intricate styles, escutcheons fit around or into a keyhole, giving it distinctive period character. Plates keep period sensibilities in place, and Horton Brasses' selection encompasses a variety of architectural styles. Find escutcheons based on William and Mary, Queen Anne, Chippendale, or Victorian characteristics.
Anywhere there's a keyhole, an escutcheon of appropriate size can fit and embellish. With round, oval, ornate, and simple brass plates all stylistic possibilities, choose from escutcheons for bookcases, secretaries, doors, and drawers. Match the style precisely with an antique, bright, light, or dark finish.
We have an extensive line of solid brass Chippendale escutcheons, over twenty styles. Several are available in two matching plate sizes; perfect for matching drawer pulls on a suite of furniture.
Adorn any keyhole in your home with beautiful Chippendale escutcheons. An attractive, ornate, and florid style frames each brass plate, with winding, baroque details embellishing the edges. Stately and refined yet distinct, our Chippendale escutcheons match similar period hardware, including handles and pulls. For a set, choose from several sizes and styles, and achieve the precise stylistic match with the right finish.
An intricate, hand-stamped design characterizes all of our Queen Anne escutcheons. Each keyhole plate is hand-punched and features an ornate style reflective of early American hardware. Mirroring the style of the late 17th and early 18th centuries, these brass escutcheons accurately convey period sensibilities. At the time, furniture began including more decorative elements, and the inclusion of Queen Anne escutcheons and other brass hardware was inevitable.
Details along the edges and on the plate make each escutcheon unique and match other Queen Anne hardware sold through Horton Brasses. For matching the style of your reproduction furniture, choose from five hardware finishes.
These hand-chased pulls and escutcheons are very early hardware and can often be found on museum pieces that date from 1670 to 1730. Delicate wire bails (the handles) and matching escutcheons were commonly found on highboys, tall chests, and 'wedding chests.'
In modern times, Horton Brasses' William and Mary escutcheons accurately depict the style and details of centuries past. A beautiful ornamentation for doors, drawers, and chests, our hardware has a classic look fit precisely for reproduction furniture of all types. To find that perfect match, choose from light, dark, bright, and antique finishes for all escutcheons and handles.
