I have been going nuts looking for a replacement escutcheon for my
shower. The story I got was that Sterling no longer makes them. It
was even suggested to me that I should replace my entire shower, by an
associate at Home Depot! What a helpful lot they are! I live in the
central Connecticut area, and I guess what I need to find is a Sterling
dealer with some old stock on hand. Sorry I cannot reference a part
number because Sterling did not see fit to stamp one on the part. If
anyone can point me in the right direction, I would really appreciate
Do you mean the decorative bit that covers the hole where the shower
head comes out, or the decorative bit that covers the hole where the
tub-spout and/or control nob comes out?
Are you looking fro just something to put there, something pretty,
or something with the official stamp of approval from Sterling, inc.?
Why not just measure the pipe, and go through plumbing and heating
looking for any escutcheon with that size hole?
It is a circular decorative piece that covers the hole where the
diverter valve, or hot/cold water mixing valve protrudes. The
escutheon also includes the cold/hot water adjusting knob. Actually, I
can do without the decorative escutcheon if I can find the knob I need.
It fits over the shaft of the diverter valve and it measures one half
inch square. I hope that nails it down. Sorry if I was vague in my
original post. If worse comes to worst, I will have to have someone
make one for me. Hopefully someone will read this who can point me in
the right direction.
I am currently looking for parts on a Bradley shower installed in 1972. I
contacted Danco Plumbing, who advised me on the stems to purchase, but the
parts list shows a different sized o-ring than that on the replacement
product itself. I was considering purchasing new Excutcheon sleeves as
well, but I don't believe it will be possible. I haven't opened the faucet
entirely. I am waiting for a Saturday to do the scary deed.
