The frames are filled in with scroll-work, R, the main scrolls being fastened with clips to the frames and to each other also. The minor scrolls also are clipped in. These frames can be each other in several ways. In the example illustrated by Fig. 115 the horizontal strips, Q (see also the detailed view, Fig. 120), act as binders, embracing the frames, being themselves held at the corners with clips, r.

In Fig. 124 the relative positions of these several parts are clearly seen, the outer frames, P, the horizontal binders, Q, and the glass, S. These parts are, of course, more
