The Neck Gable
This is the 3rd of six canal-house gables here in Amsterdam. I've shown you the beak gable
and the stepped gable
. This time I didn't want to be b-o-r-i-n-g, so I added some spires for fun (which I'll tell you about in another post.) :)
This neck gable (also called the bottle gable) is the transitional gable from the stepped to the next one coming up... But that's getting ahead of myself. These neck gables were common from 1640-1840.
I figured this was a good one for Friday, assuming many of you will be uncorking the bottles this weekend. :)
Have a great weekend!
