Nalichniki (old decorative Russian window frames) and house ornaments in Rostov

Nalichniki (old decorative Russian window frames) in Rostov Veliky

Watching these window frames of Rostov Veliky I realized something about these carved planks decorating the space between the windows: either they do not have any special name or I do not know it! That is, all sorts of cornices and carved friezes have their special names, and this very element has none. It is understandable, as the element is rather unique. But then, it may be usual in some regions and they name it somehow.

Have you ever seen anything like this? Does it have any special name, except of general “house carving”?
