    Please help identify this skirting board 9th Jun 18 at 5:02 PM
    Don't suppose anyone might know where I could purchase more of this skirting board? It's about 2cm deep and 9.5-10cm high.

    Lamb's tongue.
    There's something similar (MDF) here.

    Lots of profiles online, on many sites. If you want an exact match to the existing though you could be in difficulty.
    They are rarely actually an exact match from different suppliers. Even from the same supplier they can be different due to wear in the tooling used!
    You need to accurately measure to the mm to have any hope at all of getting a match.

    We used this company for skirting in our lounge, they will send out samples and I was impressed with the service when we sued them.Our decorator also commented on the good quality of the skirting when he fitted it for us. Recommend trying them to see if they can assist.

    Try any of the big timber merchants.
    Take a small sample if you have one.
    There used to timber merchants that would mill skirting up for you but they may have all disappeared now.

    Unless the new actually meets the old, don't be too fussy about getting it exactly right. I have an odd piece of dado rail that doesn't match the rest, it's been there 15 years & no one has noticed yet.
