The Corinthian order at St George's Hall. Corinthian capitals are profusely carved with acanthus leaves.

The Composite order on Seel St. Not a great example. This order was the invention of the Romans, it combines the scroll of the Ionic capital and the acanthus leaf of the Corinthian. Not commonly seen. In all the orders columns can either be fluted or plain except for the Tuscan, which is always plain.

The Wellington Rooms, Mount Pleasant,1816. At a glance the capitals here look like typical Corinthian, it's only on closer inspection that you see a flower in the centre, i only noticed this very recently. The capitals here are based on those at the Temple of Vesta at Tivoli, nice detailing.

Other Types of Columns and Capitals


There are a number of other forms of column and capital but they are much less commonly seen except on Victorian churches where the doorways will quite often have gothic columns around the entrance.

The Romanesque columns and capitals at Birkenhead Priory, late 12thc. This particular form is the scalloped capital.

Classical Mouldings and Motifs

Buildings in the classical style have recurring motifs to the surface. The most often seen is the Egg and Dart, other common motifs are the Palmette , Honeysuckle and Greek Key.

Back to the columns and capitals, George's Dock Ventilation Station, Herbert Rowse, 1930's. A nice bit of whimsy here, the palms of the Egyptian capitals have been turned in to the wings of the Liver Bird

The Greek Key or Fret motif

This is normally found on larger classical buildings as a band running along a wall.
