Cornice work / decorative "cornicing" (work)

My term actually covers the source wording "lavorazioni scorniciate". This is more or less what we would say here, i.e. we would not use the adjectival form so often as the Italian seems to.

I guess the quote marks could be used for - decorative "cornicing" work - if you want, but not essential IMO.
