French Plaster Architectural Ionic Capital Element, circa 1960

About

Decorative cast plaster capital of Ionic order, France, circa 1960. The capital is formed by two volutes on the flanks connected with each other by a line of egg-and-dart moulding. Part of architectural canon ever since Vitruvius, ionic order is associated with elegancy, and found most often as an integral part of architecture ensembles dedicated to learned and civilised use, such as libraries and court buildings.
