Correctly proportioned and beautifully detailed capitals are available in composition plaster or resin polyester in the styles shown. The plaster capitals are coated with boiled linseed oil at the factory but must be primed and painted inside and out. They are not load bearing but if ordered with a column, we will provide a load bearing plug. Poly resin capitals are load bearing and therefore no plug is required. Any Somerset column or pilaster, plain or fluted, may be specified with any of the ornamental capitals illustrated. Capitals are packed and shipped separately to prevent damage and to facilitate handling. Download PDF Ornamental Capitals for Wood Columns.
