Term for all finishes, moldings, ornaments, dressed stones, and the like (often projecting) around an aperture (e.g. door or window), distinguished from the rest of the naked of a wall. A façade of brick or rubble with stone dressings, therefore, has most of the wall-surface of those materials, but quoins, architraves, and the like are of dressed stone so that door- and window-frames can be accurately fixed. (Curl & Wilson, 2016)
