Scope note
Refers to architectural elements, usually of generally triangular shape, that project from a wall, pier, or other structure and which serve to support vertical loads or strengthen an angle by transferring the load against the face of the structure from which they project; sometimes more decorative than functional. For support hardware, use "brackets (support hardware)."
