This is a major find: Many readers are hunting decorative vintage doorknob backplates, formally known as escutcheons. Now, it seems that Liz’s Antique Hardware has scored some major inventory, and is featuring it all on ebay. There are numerous styles, mostly from Schage and Kwik-set, it appears. These are not cheap, each at about $95. You may be able to “wait it out” to find one for less… but you may be waiting a good long time, and as they say, time is money. You might want to check with Liz’s to ensure that this will “fit” your door, as I am not sure whether these are considered “one size fits all.” A very exciting stash, to be sure. Disclosure: Anything that you buy — from these ebay carousels or otherwise – when you click into ebay via any link on my site nets me a teensy commission; thanks for your support.
