crocket

crocket

/ˈkrɒkɪt/
noun
(in Gothic architecture) a small carved ornament, typically a bud or curled leaf, on the inclined side of a pinnacle, arch, etc.

Origin
Middle English (denoting a curl or roll of hair): from Old Northern French, variant of Old French crochet (see crotchet). The current sense dates from the late 17th century, but crotchet was used in the same sense from late Middle English until the 19th century.
