Escutcheons come in many shapes and sizes. They are used as decoration between the door and the door handle and keyhole or euro cylinder (cylinder lock).
The small escutcheons are typical for the Dutch door hardware from the period 1890-1940.
With respect to that period, we don't have the big doorplates in our assortment.
Our opinion is that the door handles and front door hardware don't have their full effect with a big doorplate, application of a doorplate on a monumental building is out of the question.
For door handles we have square, oval and round escutcheons, ornamented or smooth design, to combine with different styles of door handles from the period 1890-1940.
Historic use of escutcheons
Until the mid-1920s, door handles were only applied with square escutcheons. They were mounted vertically or diagonally. An ornamented square escutcheon was used until 1915, and a smooth square escutcheon with rounded hooks was used until the mid-30s.
The round and oval escutcheons came from the mid-20s, and can be combined with most of our door handles. Through our contact form, we can inform you about the possibilities and costs.
The escutcheons are available in the following variants: cast iron, nickel (shiny, as originally applied), antique brass (antique bronze patina), polished brass and satin nickel (brushed nickel).

In our assortment we also have the safety euro cylinder escutcheons with "SKG*** mark. Your front door will be burglar-proof, with a separate doorknob and euro cylinder escutcheon, without using the big doorplate.
Safety euro cylinder escutcheons are also available in a cheaper variant. These do not have the SKG*** certification but the quality is exactly the same.
