French term or phrase:éclisse
Context: marketing literature about garden furniture
It occurs in two places
…rappelant l’éclisse d’osier fendu
Angles droits et surfaces galbées tirent parti de l’éclisse plate.
Explanation: éclisse -
1. Eclat de bois en forme de coin
3. Bois de petites dimensions pour faire des ouvrages légers
4. Plaque de bois mince pour faire les côtés d'un luth ...
5. Rond d'osier sur lequel on fait égoutter le fromage [as above]
6. [and this is the one I know best] Plaque d'acier qui réunit les rails du chemin de fer.
I suspect it may be 3, but more context is really required to see how this thing works with whatever it is part of.
