Egg-and- dart

Homes and Antiques Magazine - - STYLE NOW -

No, sadly not an elab­o­rate brunch dish: egg-and-dart ac­tu­ally refers to a dec­o­ra­tive mo­tif seen carved into plas­ter, stone or wood. Hail­ing from an­cient Greece and Rome, but pop­u­lar in neo­clas­si­cal build­ings, the de­sign is o en seen on mould­ing, trim or cor­nice work and in­cludes a re­peat­ing egg shape, in­ter­spersed with dart-like slashes.
