English term or phrase: ogee
The name of a circular pattern used in textile/wallpaper, very much used in the 70s. Like that: http://www.patterndesigns.com/en/design/3003/Ogee-Oh
I know that dictionaries translate it as "doucine", but as far as I know a "doucine" defines exclusively a certain profile of a moulding in architecture, and is not a 2D pattern to be printed.
Anybody knows how that specific pattern for textile/wallpaper is called?
