American Georgian Symbols/Motifs

Classical motifs, defining the architectural overall image, include pilasters, pediments, dentil moldings, balustrades, round arches with keystones, and quoins. Common motifs in interiors include the ear (right angled projection), the shell, the acanthus leaf, rosettes, pineapples, or pine cones, and naturalistic flowers. Also themes from oriental influence are common, especially with Chinoiserie and the Chippendale style.
