Right-Hand Dress

The furrow pattern of a pair of MILLSTONES where the RUNNER STONE rotates clockwise as seen from above(in a conventional windmill or watermill layout). With millstones DRESSED with HARP pattern furrows, a MASTER FURROW, when viewed from one edge of the stone, passes from the right-hand side of the EYE (DRAFT CIRCLE) to the edge of the stone towards the viewer. The minor furrows lie parallel to it on its right hand side. With SICKLE DRESS and other variants of curved furrows, the furrows similarly pass generally from the right hand side of the draft circle towards the viewer. Both stones of the pair usually carry an identical DRESS as viewed when DRESSING, i.e. with RUNNER STONE face-up.
