Update Spet. 2016: I saw another one of these on ebay — and it’s Howard Pierce. The ebay listing also had a doorbell cover!
Vintage front door escutcheon designs are pretty rare to begin with — but have you ever seen one like this before? Pam spotted this lovely woddity: a midcentury door plate escutcheon with an Evelyn Ackerman-esque (?) bird design on ebay. We have never seen this design before. It may be a rare bird indeed — not just because of its unusual and attractive design, but also because of its massive size — a full 16 inches tall!
From the eBay listing description:
Mid century door escutcheon plate in the manner of Evelyn Ackerman. Not sure of maker/manufacturer though. Very cool and unique item.
Update Sept. 2014 — Howard Pierce!
Mega thanks to eBay seller levialaska for allowing us to feature her photos of this unique piece.
