Quick Reference

An ornamental design resembling a partly unrolled scroll of parchment which was a very common decorative motif. In stylized form it can be seen everywhere from the capital of a column, to a chair leg, to the end of a violin. It was a particularly popular theme in the Rococo period, often seen in the form of C-scrolls, in the form of a letter C, and S-scrolls.
