A corbel—a triangular structure that looks akin to a raven’s beak and that juts out of the face of a building or under cabinets in a home—has a colorful history. Corbels have been used since ancient times and were decorative accents to some of Rome and France’s most elaborate buildings.

Many Pilaster designs of the ancient era are still widely used today, some very fancy, while others simple, yet elegant. The Traditional Pilaster Series corbels have the same distinct style as the traditional corbel, but can be used in many applications, such as kitchens, living rooms, around fireplace mantels; libraries and dens or anywhere a slender, feminine look is wanted.

Traditional Pilaster Series corbels have three smooth lines on the face of the corbel that coil and loop down, as if in a scroll. Beautifully hand-carved, these Traditional Pilaster corbels come in various types of wood, including Cherry, Walnut, Pine, Maple, Poplar, Mahogany, Alder and Red Oak. They come separately boxed and ready to stain.

Babylonian architecture made wide use of corbels. The corbels carrying the arches of the corbel tables in Italy and France were often elaborately moulded and sometimes in two or three courses projecting over one another.

Today, installing the Plaster Traditional Series Corbels on the face of your home or public building will create a charming accent that will add increased value and lasting elegance.
