Sink Hole Shape Difference


I have an older sink with a teardrop shaped hole for the center part of the faucet.
The newer faucet I want to put in is a standard circular shape, which means the back of the teardrop, is open.

There has to be a product out there for this situation, but I can't seem to find it.
I don't need to cover the side holes, I will be putting the faucet handles into them, once I figure out the center.

Any help would be appreciated.

What about the old faucet? Is there an escutcheon plate you could possibly reuse?

Thanks for the replys.

The old faucet was just bigger and longer, it did not have a plate, and I couldn't find any plates that really fit that teardrop shape.

I eventually just gave up and bought a more expensive faucet ($165 ridiculous!) that was ridiculously big, so it would cover the whole hole.
Even with the bigger faucet, the underside washer was only barely larger than the whole, so I had to tape it in place as I tighted the nut into it, so it wouldn't slip, but I finally got it done.
