That's a great question.
What is the appropriate term for that kind of decoration on a frame?
LJ Allegra line, or Nurre Caxton mini's are like that, and I always struggle to sound "professional" when all I can come up with is "fancy shapes"
Just went down the rabbit hole that is Bomar Frame Design Products. They make the compo for close cornered frames. I did not find this pattern as such, though I did find one that had the same shape perpendicular to the length of the moulding. Just a stock number.
Call it the Shuttlecock motif and dare anyone to prove you wrong.
My money is on Melinda in post #17 for being the real answer.
Although Vic's post 11 is fun. 'Jules Verne Gold' has a ring to it. And another one of the ideas would fit well with some content of your site.
