History of corbeau

Corbels are employed in Romanesque buildings to support shelves or ledges banners. They are decorated with simple trim, or they offer allegorical sculptures of pure fantasy.

After the 13th century, corbels disappear from ledges and are used only to support balconies, bay windows, battlements, frames or girder floors. In Gothic architecture, richly decorated corbels supported lintels of important gates.
