Capitals & Columns

The earliest documentation we have found of our line of Column Capitals and Pilaster Capitals can be found in a 1902 publication entitled the “Universal Design Book” reprinted by Dover Publications in 1996. This 1902 publications contains copyrighted illustrations dated 1899 that still appear in our current catalog #127 – "Illustrated Catalogue of Capitals & Brackets". Our Capitals and Pilasters can be found in historic properties throughout the country
We are unique in the industry in that we build our over 900 sizes of Column Capitals and Pilaster Capitals by hand – milling out the wood form to exact specifications to receive the highly detailed composition carvings that are attached to the wood form. For example, with the Roman Corinthian Capital shown on this page, over 60 individual leaves were applied to the wooden armature.
