Victorian Roof Cresting Symbol or Object?

Recommended Posts

Anyone know where I can find a Victorian roof cresting symbol or object? The ones built into Chief aren't quite what I'm looking for. Thanks!

Do you have a photo or sketch of what you are looking for?  If it is not too complicated or if it repeats maybe it could be drawn in Chief.

 

This is a quick and dirty transparent image clipped from the web and quickly edited then imported as material and applied to a psolid.  Will this work or are you looking for more?

Funny that we both landed on the same website.  Let me know if you need some help converting to a material.  I checked some of you other posts, quite a project you are into.

Was the original intent of roof ridge cresting used to keep birds(pigeons maybe) off the roof?

Thanks Chopsaw!

 

Northriver, that would be my guess. Everything I can find says it's just for decoration. However, by having roof cresting on the edges of a Mansard roof it would prevent birds from pooping on the visible areas of the roof I would think. I'm just doing it for decoration.
