I live in a 1899 house in St. Louis. The style is of a Richardsonian Romanesque but a little plainer than early forms.
We have these bull nose treatments throughout the house. In most locations they have been either removed or filled in with mud. I would like to repair them in my office where they are still intact. The run from the floor, up the knee wall and onto the sloped ceiling.
Does this style has a name?
Any tips on how to repair?
I vaguely recall a TOH episode where they had something similar and the plasterer made a custom trowel to cut the groves.
About 270° of the round dowel is exposed, so it is not a simple angle on the inside edge. A trowel would have to be rounded out to match the bull nose profile.
The round part is a wooden dowel with a plaster skim coat. In most areas, just the wall edge is damaged, I think that will be easy to repair as I only have to sand down the angle. But in other areas there are chips all the way down to the dowel. These will have to be re-built. Thanks in advance.
