Information provided by:

Being married to a carpenter, I have the pleasure of being immersed in a world of architectural trim. My most recent learning experience came in the form of the rosette block.

Wooden rosette blocks are both functional and fashionable. They form a decorative corner on door and window casings; functionally, they eliminate the need to calculate complicated miters, usually otherwise required where moldings meet in corners.

Wood rosettes have been featured on door and window casings since the 1800s and were especially popular in Victorian homes. These days they be may used with many trim styles to create a traditional or transitional feel.

This historic Highland Park, Illinois, residence features original stained trimwork with rosette blocks.
Rosette blocks helpedUnion Studio conserve the architectural integrity of this Jamestown, Rhode Island, home during its renovation and addition.
Wood rosettes add decorative detail to the original wood moldings in this Boston apartment.
Designed by architect David Adler, this historic Princeton, New Jersey, home features a bevy of architectural details, including bull’s-eye rosettes.
Along with rosette blocks, bull’s-eye plinth blocks are used at the edge where the baseboard joins the casing of the doorways in this Encinitas, California, waterfront home.
Rosette blocks are quite common in Victorian homes, such as this 1898 San Francisco row house.
