Door escutcheons are used either side of a door knob. This Rogaland design was painted in 2004 using JoSonja acrylics. It measures 3 7/8” x 24 ¼” x 3/8”.
This old Rogaland style was taken from the painter, Lars Trageton (1770-1839). He came from Hallingdal in the 1790's; his early painting resembling that from the Sata school. After 1800 he developed his own style and laid the foundation for the distinctive Ryflyke style. He is known for the chrysanthemum and other stylized flowers.
The shape I designed with memories of iron ones I’d seen on old Norwegian doors. I thought it would be fun to have a different style on each of the doors in one’s house. You could even add a cute name for the room, or announce whose room it is. Enjoy and have fun.
The packet includes three pages of instructions, three enlarged photographs and the line drawing.
