High quality Corbels and Carvings

Corbels have been used in architecture for hundreds of years. Originating in Medieval architecture, the name corbel was attached to a piece of stone jutting out of a wall in order to support a superincumbent weight. Although corbels were originally constructed from natural stone, as time progressed, several different materials have been used.

In modern architectural detail, these modified brackets are constructed out marble, faux stone, concrete, polyurethane, polystyrene, and several different styles of wood. Beginning in the Early English period, wood has become the favorite material in corbel construction.
