The term "escutcheon" is a French word that means "shield." It refers to the decorative ironwork used on ships' hulls and sometimes in jewellery. An escutcheon is designed to fit into these decorative holes and latches as a way of protecting them from corrosion. They are made of different materials which include but are not limited to brass, nickel, ceramic and pewter.
