What Are Plaster Mouldings?

Blog |October 7th, 2015

Plaster Mouldings are architectural mouldings of a highly decorative nature that professionals create from Plaster using special techniques. Since the 16th century, builders have turned to this type of ornamentation for structures ranging from government buildings to residential establishments. Here at our company, we manufacture and install various sizes, shapes and designs of these mouldings to provide a wide assortment of architectural enhancements. We offer some examples here in this information.

Style Examples

1. HP0201 is in the Victorian-style cornice moulding, measures 135 mm x 282 mm x 3.6 m and contains the following design scheme:

  • Egg and dart
  • Shell and bell flower
  • Bead and reel

2. HP0202 measures 106 mm x 110 mm x 4.2 m and is a cornice moulding that is reminiscent of the Inter-War era. The description is plains with a scotia curve.
