    Default Old cornice sydney area

    I have pulled out my ceiling in the kitchen and looking at getting some decorative plaster cornice uo match in the rest of the house, I bought some from a plaster masta store a while ago but off memory the widest was 200mm.

    I have some in my lounge 350mm, is it possible to get it this wide and where?

    Looking at the 350mm did they buy it like this 50 yrs ago or did they make it on site?

    Hi barney,
    I sent you some details (pm) of the guys I use. They stock a lot of plaster cornice and can make special orders. Let me know how you go.

    Have a look at Cooper Brothers website....http://cooperbrothers.com.au/

    They make fibrous plaster cornices etc - widest ornate cornicing I have seen that they have is 320 wide by 165 deep (series AR 39) priced at about $45.00 for 4.2m lengths. They deliver around Sydney for $60.00, not sure about Wollongong....good luck

    That's a good selection from Coopers. They should have dimensions posted on their website though.
    I used some stuff from Sydney Plasterworks a while back to build this portico;



    The cornice across the bottom is a monster, and it doesn't look like it's in their line-up any more, but they still have cornices up to 350 wide.
    The columns come as half-pipes and you join them up the centre, on top of the base, and capitol to finish it off. The painters did a good job of 'marbling' them as well.

    Big plasterwork looks impressive in the right setting, but you need big spaces to pull it off succesfully.
