Ornamental and ornate style inspired by classic Greek architecture.
As more homes were built in the style of Greek temples and buildings, more parallels were drawn between that culture and today. These are reflected in this collection. Columns began being used both inside and outside the home. Embossed mouldings began showing up here, ornamental or carved Friezes were utilized and the use of bed mould in cornice assemblies were common. This style also used the echinus, portions of the ellipse, beak mould (seen in our staff bead ACM7468), fillets and chamfers. The palmette, acanthus leaf, tendrils, anthemion and honeysuckle blossoms were widely used in ornamentation.
