CANNES DESK By Ralph lauren
Key holes or otherwise known as escutcheons can be the perfect way of dressing up a white dresser. Escutheons were popular and served a function at one time when locks accompanied most chests and dressers. Today they are hardly seen except on antiques. Today you can find brass stampings off of the internet at most hardware internet sites for a dollar or less. You may also try the older vintage hardware stores, as they may carry stock of the vintage ornate hardware. Beautiful antique brass escutcheons can be found from salvage sellers off of ebay. They often sell lots (or sets of groups) of keyholes that you can hammer on to each drawer, which would otherwise be impossible to find. If you keep your eyes on ebay you can find some of the nicer french Louis escutcheons, or Victorian sets that once belonged to stately chests. Ormolu and decorative key holes is the number one way of revamping that ordinary chest to something with outstanding distinction.
