pilaster strip

Show Summary Details

Quick Reference

Lesene or piedroit which, unlike an anta or pilaster, has no base or capital, has no entasis, and is not a true pilaster: it is a feature of Anglo-Saxon work, and with the plinths and corbel-table, frames the panels of Romanesque bays. It is more slender than a pilaster-mass.
