A molding profile like this can be used for the collar of a pilaster, column or as an entablature architrave.
The latter use is especially common on simple Victorian style entablatures in rural areas.
It also makes a great wall or ceiling frame — we’ll be using something similar on our half bathroom.
You’ll have the best luck finding this astragal molding at a local molding & millwork retailer, rather than a big home improvement store.
It’s a molding profile that should be in stock any place that sells moldings. Alas, we are not living in those times.
