Architectural Balusters – Kirsten Dunst as Marie Antionette
Architectural Balusters Anne Green Springs Flicker
Balusters are molded shafts which are square or of lathe-turned form which stand in a row supporting a handrail (also known as a bannister) of a staircase. When multiplied in this way, they form a balustrade. An individual baluster shaft also are used in candlesticks, furniture support, or chandelier parts. Balusters are made of stone, wood and sometimes metal.
