It's usually used for more decorative and classical applications, but "frieze" is probably the right term.

I wonder whether you mean the type of molding that makes something like a frame?
If so, that's panel moulding, or picture frame moulding. Big with the Georgians.
Like this sort of thing? http://pinterest.com/pin/27113...

That area of the tripartite wall structure is called the frieze. The area below the chair rail is the dado and the large area between is the wall fill. If your frieze is decorated with raised plaster it may be either lincrusta or anaglypta, both Victorian decorative finishes with raised patterns.
