"Egg and Dart"

I used this "egg and dart" border as the cornice in a recent bathroom renovation. It is a plaster moulding in an egg-shape followed by an arrow or dart. Egg and dart is an ornamental neo-classical moulding widely used in the 18th century and obviously originally in classical Greek architecture. The mouldings can be made from wood, stone, plaster or pressed metal.
