Pulpit PST-4 newels are the shortened version of standard PST-4 newels and are usually required when an up-coming handrail meets the post below the turning, like on the inside corner of a 90 degree winding turn.
The Twist style is traditional and highly ornamental, meaning they work well on their own as well as mixed and matched with complementing plainer styles.
The interesting turned details of the twist design give these newels a striking look in whichever timber they are produced in.
This design is of Baroque origin, it is sometimes called a barley twist or barley sugar twist, and it gives a unique texture to the newel.
