See also:stone, though the majority are of
See also:wood . Those in churches are generally hexagonal or octagonal; and some stand on stone bases, and others on slender wooden stems, like columns . The designs vary accordingly to the periods in which they were erected, having panelling, tracing, cuspings, crockets, and other ornaments then in use . Some are extremely

See also:colour and
See also:gilding . A few also have
See also:fine canopies or sounding-boards . Their usual place is in the
