Decorative Wall Medallions

Decorative wall medallions have been used in many different   ways.  They can be commemorations, a   university landmark, or even part of a worthy representation before a court –   a sign of local traditions.

Commemorative or ornamental items

Wall medallions can be painted on a wall or placed as a plaster   relief to commemorate an event or to prove nationality.  A simple decorative or decorative medallion   can be made of metal or plaster of paris and hung on a wall so that it can be   moved to another location if desired.

Funny medallions

Medallions don’t always have to be formal or official.  They can be pretty or funny, elegant or   just an expression of your personal taste.    They can show scenes from books or movies, or even keep the memory of   a favorite pet.

Part of a larger pattern or arrangement

Plaster medallions are often the central part of a larger set of   decorations, such as  B. a plaster   frieze, or can be coordinated with other decorations in your rooms.  You can even tie a variety of styles   together in different rooms.  However,   plaster decorations can be damaged by moisture.  To preserve them, they should be protected   from moisture.

Historical and heraldic designs

Some medallions reflect the heraldic patterns that were placed on   shields and similar items in the Middle Ages.    Heraldry included a variety of designs.  The placement of birds, animals, and other   items on a sign tells viewers who is behind the visor.  Cultures besides feudal Europe also created   decorative medallions that could be hung or carried on walls.

Metal medallions

Metal lockets are likely to be more durable than plaster of paris   lockets and are less likely to be damaged by wind or weather.  For these reasons, they are better suited   for outdoor display than plaster of paris medallions.  Bronze or copper are popular metals for   medallions or similar decorations outdoors, since wind and weather only give   a decorative patina with age.  Below   are ten sample medallions for your pleasure.
