  Design Theory: Crown Moulding Origins

  Crown Moulding Originates from the Cornice Section of the Entablature of Classical Buildings.

  The Classical orders define the various moulding components such as crowns, panel molds,

  triglyphs and dentil mouldings in the Entablature.





 Tuscan Order Origins


 The Tuscan Order is the basis for simpler Architectural

 components such as Crown Moulding as seen here in the

 diagram. Tuscan originates from the Etruscans

 (6th Century BC) Mediterranean society. 

 Tuscan crown is used today in many structures both for

 exterior and interior decoration.

 Doric Order Origins


 The Doric Order is the basis for more complex Architectural

 components such as Crowns, Dentils and Triglyph moulding

 as seen here in the diagram.  Doric is one of the oldest Greek

 Orders. The Entablature is more elaborate and the column

 base uses an Attic Style. The combinations look similar to

 Tuscan and are often mistaken for Tuscan

 Ionic Order Origins


 The Ionic Order is denoted with the circular Volutes that

 resemble a Rams Head horn.  The crown is more detailed

 with numerous horizontal lines followed by dentil and

 egg-dart panel molds. The frieze is plain as are the two

 facia sections in the Architrave. Ionic can use angled

 column capitals called Scamozzi and always use an Attic

 base. In the case of Greek Ionic there is no column base.

 Corinthian Order Origins


 The Corinthian Order is far more elaborate than the previous  

 four styles.  It is denoted by Acanthus leaves in the column 

 capital.  The crown moulding is enhanced with lamb's tongue

 Further elements are introduced under the crown such as

 Modillion Blocks, egg and dart panel molds, and dentil

 mouldings.  The frieze section is plain however there are

 details in the facia area of the Architrave.

 Attic bases are always engaged for the column.

 Composite Order Origins


 The Composite is a combination of Ionic and Corinthian.

 with many more elaborate features. It is denoted by

 Acanthus leaves in the columns capital and the volutes of

 the Ionic Order. 

 The crown moulding is linear but is enhanced with lambs

 Tongue. Under the crown we find modillion blocks, and a 

 strip of dentil moulding. The frieze is denoted by a Rinceau

 pattern. The Taenia divides the Frieze from the Architrave

 with a Lamb's Tongue pattern. The Architrave is divided

 into two Facias by a Lamb's Tongue pattern.  

 Attic bases are always engaged.
