Escutcheon is an old French word meaning a shield. Today it means: a flat piece of metal for protection and often ornamentation, around a keyhole, door handle, or light switch.
An escutcheon is often part of a lockset to protect the surrounding area from damage and wear from the end of the key when it misses the keyhole. OK, another way of writing this is that escutcheon is a fancy French word for keyhole cover. Of course, when your little covers are fancy and French, it’s fun to use the fancy French word for them.
