Romanian term or phrase: coada cocoşului
Piesele săseşti de mobilier pictat (coastănul, patul, fereastra oarbă) au preluat unele elemente decorative şi din ciopliturile în lemn: “atica” (coada cocoşului) aplicată la decorarea cornişei, pe când unele buchete de flori pictate se înrudesc cu cele cioplite pe stâlpii de poartă, ori cu cele brodate pe ştergare sau căpătâie de pernă. Dintre uneltele legate de industria casnică textilă cele mai interesante ca formă şi decor sunt: războiul de ţesut, furcile de tors şi îndreptarele pentru pânză, vârtelniţele, sucalele şi suveicile.

Attica
Explanation:
In English we also use the term "attica" to describe a part of a cornice. I would say that the rooster tail description in brackets is simply describing the design of the attica.

"Attica
1....
2. A low wall or story above the cornice of a classical façade. "

neutral  Ioana Costache: Perhaps "rooster tail" would be enough - after all, it's descriptive
