Since cresting essentially represents repeating frieze ornaments, this collection is intended not only for those who deal with architecture and furniture manufacturing, but also for all who need to decorate something  with frieze ornaments. All these cresting designs originate from old catalog companies which used to produce them, or from old Russian books on architecture. Old Russian wooden buildings architecture  is a typical example not only of cresting, but also of various other wooden decorative elements usually made in scroll saw technique.
