Brass examples

Each of these chests has a brass faux pas. Can you spot them? The chest on the left, circa 1830, has 18th century style Chippendale pulls and William and Mary triangular escutcheons. The chest on the right from about the same time has drawer pulls that are correct for the period but has thin stamped convex brass escutcheons more appropriate for a Hepplewhite piece or a Colonial Revival reproduction. )Photos courtesy of Turkey Creek Auction, Citra, FL.)
