Yes, I had put that, but wondered if it could be something else. Looks like it's the rosette motif on a finger-plate or door-handle, in the house-inspection report I am translating.

Explanation: harraps gives "rose" for an architectural feature for example on a ceiling, such as you might see around a chandelier. This could also, I believe, be used to refer to rose motifs which appear on other parts of a building.
The term when referring to around stained-glass window such as the famous one in Notre Dame in Paris is a "rose window". However, I don't think that is what you are looking for here.
