from The Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia
- n. An arch lower in proportion than is usual: as, a blunt-pointed arch, a segmental arch, or a three-centered arch.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
The method of cusping the drop-arch and the varied treatment of these in nave, choir and transepts are noteworthy while the little quatrefoil at the intersection of mullion and transom is a really happy innovation.
