    Hi I am working on my Eli Terry pillar and scroll wood movement and can't for the life of me fine this small diamond shaped escutcheon for the case door lock keyhole. Anyone happen to have one to sell? or point me in the right direction. Thanks, Robert San Francisco. btw I puts the clocks away for a few years and just back to it. and loving the craft and of course the clocks!

    An old piano key crafted to fit perhaps. Assuming that you are speaking about the inlaid ivory looking piece.

    I have replaced some fair number of these in the recent past. There is no standard size, all of them have required custom fit. Not too surprising given the clock they are used on are 200 years old and were made by a lot of different folks. I have pretty much run out of old ivory piano keys, and given some states prohibition of anything ivory these days, I have been using bone as a replacement.
