  1. Ovolo

    Ovolo in architecture, is a convex molding known also as the echinus, which in Classical architecture was invariably carved with the egg-and-dart ornament. The molding is called a quarter-round by woodworkers. This is not to be confounded with the "echinus" of the Dorian capital, as this was of a more varied form and of much larger dimensions than the ovolo, which was only a subordinate molding.

    ō′vō-lō, n. (archit.) a moulding with the rounded part composed of a quarter of a circle, or of an arc of an ellipse with the curve greatest at the top. [It.,—L. ovum, an egg.]
