Relatively plain when compared against other neoclassical crown millwork, Greek Revival crown molding profiles rely on the echinus or ovolo to create a proportional balance with base molding profiles.
Greek Revival Casing #1
Doors and windows in Greek Revival homes can be embellished with casing that features the cyma reversa shape with bead and quirk details. Compared to other styles it is relatively unadorned.
Greek Revival Casing #2
Less ornate styles of door and window trim include planed wood coupled with a cyma recta or reversa to maintain symmetry.
The Characteristics of Greek Revival Millwork
Rising in popularity during the late neoclassical movement, Greek Revival style architecture emerged in the beginning of the 19th century. Like the Ancient Greek architecture that inspired the style, Greek Revival moldings rely upon the echinus, portions of an ellipse, the beak mold, fillets, and chamfers. Millwork, from door casing to crown molding, celebrate symmetry and a sense of proportion.
