Escutcheon - Handrailing Decoration
Escutcheons come in a variety of sizes and shapes, but
sometimes are difficult to find at your local home improvement centers
or lumber yards. Most of the time, they're used to cover up, some type
of stairway hand railing connection.
For example: If you had a metal handrail, like the picture above, that was going to connect to an interior wall, you would use an escutcheon to cover the wall handrail bracket connector.
They can also be used at the base of the baluster or spindle.
