This stamped brass key escutcheon is painted. We believe the paint to be original. Some manufacturers coated or painted their furniture hardware before releasing the hardware to the retail stores. The paint on this escutcheon looks old. The escutcheon dates to the late 1800s to very early 1900s.
The key hole cover measures 2 1/4 inches horizontally and one inch vertically. Small brads will be included.
