    Now I'm really lost! This refers to plafones or ceilings:

    pulido con molduras tipo pecho de paloma en piedra
    cantera.

    Polished with pigeon breast type moldings in quarry stone?

    That doesn't sound like it makes much sense.

    Sometimes the name is "buche de paloma"; please find a photo and compare with "ogee molding"; "ogee" is more than one profile, covers a number of variations on the basic paloma shape.
