What is this bit called please ?

Recommended Posts

Hi, I need to replace one of these pieces, mainly the piece which is in the middle above the fancy bit ?

Any advice where to get it from would be helpful too.

 Thanks

Try an architectural salvage company. 

Heres a list of our local ones - if you hint at your location  in your profile, we'd be able to help you by suggesting sites local to you.

Can't really see what the middle bit is. Could you cut a ridge tile to shape?

It looks like a terracotta or brick decorative moulding. Moulding is probably one word you can start from.

 

Take one to a salvage yard, and say “this”.

 

If there are lots of those on houses in your locality, then someone local should have one.

 

May be worth gossiping down the street to see if anyone has a spare.

 

Really need a wider piccie.

Personally I think dentil may be the wrong direction as I think this is Gothic not Classical, and Dentil Is a classical term. Obvs that could be wrong and any term may put you in the ballpark.
