About Molding. What is the stuff beneath a crown?
Hi, I have a question about a molding.
I can see a big crown in this picture, however is it a crown itself or other molding is down below?
If that so, I want to know the name of molding.
Best regards. Thank you.

They are based on classical moldings - so the top part that meets the ceiling is the cornice, the flat area below it is the frieze and the lower edge is the architrave. Sometimes the architrave is in the form of a picture rail, but not here by the looks of it.

Sometimes they call it dental work

If it is old and original, it could have been milled out of one or two pieces. That would be some very expensive stuff to recreate. Now a days that is often done through layers of boards and multiple types of molding(there is another name that I am blanking in). It takes a decent hand and vision to be able to put it all together.

The lower part of the wall is called the wainscot. The lower part of the upper molding is just part of the trim (my guess). Same for the baseboard. Nice house.
