Appareil, grand (big regular bond ©)

The translation in the title is followed by this sign ©; this means that it has been "invented" by me.

The stones are assembled in a regular pattern, and the assises (courses) will have a height of approx. 12 inch or more.
The nef (nave) of the Saint-Symphorien in Sanvignes-les-Mines is made in grand appareil.
See also grand appareil (synonym).
