WTB: doorknob escutcheons

Postby turboblown » Sun Dec 14, 2008 9:56 pm

I'm looking for a pair of gold/brass doorknob escutcheons- either the large round style (about 7" ? dia) or starburst style. I may even consider the square/diamond stlye.

Here are some of my extras. The starburst excuthcheons have a smaller diameter, 2 1/4 in, than most doorknobs. Don't forget, there are some doorBELL button excutcheons that you may find to match your doorknob plates......

Hey there turboblown,
You can't really tell from the picture, but they are a really beautiful polished brass color. Did you get from the previous that they are a really unusual size for the doorknob diameter of 2 1/4 in.? Also I do believe that they have reproduced the diamond(square) shapes. You also know that you will need to move the door knob toward center of the door with a 5 in bolt to the catch?

I am fabricating a bolt set to mount the knobs in the center of the doors. I need a 16" backset to do this on the two doors. This is the nice thing about having fabricating equipment. You can ship them to me now. I'm almost ready to install them.

Dr. Swanky, I had the same trouble. The new Schlage set I wanted to use wouldn't fit my NOS escutcheon. Ended up buying the "Dexter" by Schlage line. Used that half on the exterior and the Schlage style I preferred on the interior.
