External mouldings bring character and prestige to the façade of any property and are of particular interest to those wishing to restore or recreate the features of classic period architecture. From simple details such as quoins, to delicate additions in the form of a string course or dentils – external mouldings are a versatile and simple way to elevate any property beyond the ‘ordinary’.
Decorative cornicing has been a feature of internal architecture since the 16th century and was traditionally used as a way to beautify the roughly plastered interiors of ancient homes. The craft gradually became more and more specialised, and the designs more ornate, with plaster mouldings becoming a key feature of Georgian, Victorian and Edwardian architecture.
In our specialist workshop, we hand make decorative cornices that range from the most detailed designs to simple but effective finishing touches for any room. Customers can choose from a vast selection of stock cornices, while for restoration work we offer a bespoke service using a moulding process to replicate and repair existing cornices.

Our handmade plaster ceiling roses bring distinction to any room and may be fitted singly or in groups for dramatic effect. Choose from simple and understated or ornate and highly decorative styles.
