Grillwork is decorative grating of metal, wood, stone, or other material used as a screen, divider, barrier, or as a purely decorative element. It may function as a window, either with or without glazing. Grillwork may also refer to the decorative front end of a motor vehicle. Grillwork is sometimes referred to as simply as a “grill” or as “grille”, but the latter terms do not convey a decorative quality. These words are all derived from the Old French greille.
