Interesting mouldings.

Post by josys36 »

Hello group!

I wanted to share some pictures of the door and window mouldings in my 1857 house. Has anyone see this type before. At one point they had a somewhat lighter finish on them, and in the early 1900s they were painted. A great individual lent me a book on researching house histories and from what I saw in there they would call this Greek revival.

Thanks!

Jason

You're welcome. I do it in Paint. I knocked it down to 25%. Sure are pretty moldings.

Greek Revival is a good description for your moldings.
