Gothic Style Mouldings


Approximately 1180 to 1520

Introduced by France, Gothic architecture was characterized by vaulted roofs, pointed arches, buttresses and spires. These large structures were supported by mouldings, which served as a mammoth skeleton. The mouldings, or ribs, are most evident in the vaulted ceilings of Gothic buildings. Rather than having a decorative function, Gothic mouldings served primarily as weight bearers. Their hollows had great depth and featured dog-tooth ornament.

See the individual mouldings and specifications for further information.  See the Gothic style mouldings: casing, base, chair rail, or crown.
