Originally strips of wood approximately 1 to 1 1/2 inch wide, 1/4 to 3/8 inch thick by approximately 4 ft. long which were nailed across the wall studs for the purpose of supporting plaster. Subsequently newer materials, including metal wire mesh, have been introduced for the purpose of providing a foundation for plaster and they are also termed lath or lathing materials.
