Term Main definition
Astragal
In classical architecture this is a small semi-circular moulding, generally used with the Ionic Order. To cabinet makers however, an astragal is a glazing bar on the glass-fronted doors of case furniture such as bookcases and escritoires. It is also a small molding used to overlap or seal the joint where a pair of doors meet.
