Unpainted annulet molding between the volutes at the Hammond-Harwood House

An annulet is a small square component in the Doric capital, under the quarter-round. It is also called a fillet or listel, although fillet and listel are also more general terms for a narrow band or strip,[1] such as the ridge between flutes.

An annulet is also a narrow flat architectural moulding, common in other parts of a column, viz. the bases, as well as the capital. It is so called, because it encompasses the column round.[clarification needed] In this sense, annulet is frequently used for baguette or little astragal.


  1. ^ "listel". Dictionary. "a narrow band in architecture: fillet"
