referred to as Ridge Crestings, these cast iron embellishments feature on many
Victorian buildings, located to the edge of, or along the ridge of a roof. This type of embellishment can be produced in
different sizes, according to the intended location.
This particular cresting is included in the catalogue of the MacFarlane Company and produced at their Saracen Foundry throughout their period of operation.
Examples if this embellishment can be viewed in a variety of historic locations and are seen here along the ridge of the roof of the iconic Cliff Lift station in Southend-on-Sea and the Victorian shelters in Kings Gardens, Southport.
is just one example of historic designs of crestings for which Lost Art Limited
have created patterns for restoration work and can now offer castings in iron
or other materials as required.
