Ahhhhhhhh, the starburst escutcheon, practically the Holy Grail for any MCM house.
Just check out how completely AWESOME Uncle Atom’s front door looks with that yummy escutcheon. Just so y’all know Uncle Atom went the extra mile on his front door and made it extra special with a fabulous Crestview door kit. Uncle Atom, I think we’re all in love! If y’all have not checked out Uncle Atom’s blog yet HERE is a link, be sure to stop on by - it’s lots of MCM fun.
So now I had escutcheons on my mind after seeing Uncle Atom’s spectacular front door. Huh, what’s one to do when you want an obscure item from the 50s or 60s? Well sure, I think I’ll stop on by eBay!
Oh boy, did I find escutcheons! Check it out y’all, seller skynon has tons of old deadstock escutcheons. I was completely amazed at the huge the selection he has! The pictures here don’t even cover half of his inventory, though I tried to show all the MCM escutcheons he has. Just check out his ‘items for sale’ and be sure to type in escutcheon, and all of his current auctions will pop right up! They are all a bit pricey, being right around the $100 mark – but if you need an escutcheon this is probably the best selection you will ever have.
Well I’ll be, that sure looks like your escutcheon Uncle Atom! I love this Schlage starburst design, so classic and MCM!
Oooohhhhhh, this Schalge starburst escutcheon is pretty fabulous too.
Here is the same Schlage escutcheon as above only in a brushed finish brass, not shiny.
This escutcheon looks pretty similar to the ones above, at least to me.
But I think it may be a heavier weight escutcheon than the Schlage.
A lovely Kwikset starburst escutcheon. See, I told you this guy had a lot!
A sweet little Kwikset diamond shape escutcheon.
I really like this Trimco elongated diamond shape escutcheon!
I thought this Schlage escutcheon was way Fab! The box states this design as ‘Continental’.
Gosh, I really love all the Asian escutcheons too. He has the Schlage Ming design in both red and black.
Finally, the Schlage ‘Manhatten’ escutcheon. So totally cool and MCM.
I guess I’ll need about 7 front doors on my house so I can use all these different cool escutcheons.
