American Eagle Wrought Iron Key Escutcheon. Circa 1810. It is possible that this escutcheon dates to the late 18th century, but we feel more comfortable dating it to circa 1810. The only other eagle escutcheon from this period we could locate sold at Pook & Pook in October of 2008 for $3,042. That example was only 3 1/2" ht and this one offered here is 6" ht. Several tiny hand-stamped feathers. Overall a really nice piece of early American metalware with a great folk art charm!
