Is this piece flat?
If you were to set it on a flat surface, while the inner ring where the screw holes are located touches the surface, would the outer circumference be touching the surface also? In other words, is the inner ring lower/deeper?
My experience is inconsistent with the reply you received from Brandis at Delta. I was also told the same thing by Delta when I called them last week. When I explained what follows below to the person on the phone, they were unable to understand me. I had previously ordered the chrome RP5883 escutcheon to replace an old gold one (part number unknown-Delta really should put part numbers on their parts it would save a lot of hand waving over the phone). I actually ordered RP5883 twice by mistake from different sources; the parts I received were the same.
> Photo A: You can see the outer edge of old goldie is above the counter surface while the edge of the inner opening rests on the counter. Both the inner and outer edges of the new chrome one would be flush with the surface if the foam gasket behind the outer rim were not there. But if you look closely, you can still tell the chrome one sits lower than the gold one.

I am now ordering RP7577, confusingly described by Delta as the "shallow" version of this escutcheon, which might be the one I need. Or I might just spray paint the whole shower a nice shade of brown.
