Please identify these trim molding profiles

I obtained a bunch of these two types of trim molding pieces at an auction. I am going to use the one on the left for my basement as baseboard trim.

What is the intended use of the type of trim on the right? Are these two supposed to fit together like a two piece crown molding or something of the sort? They don't seem to go together.

i want to sell the stuff on the right that I am not using, but don't know how to advertise it.
Thanks!

The trim board on the left looks like a border board. It's rabbeted to fit over a smaller trim, could be above base moulding, or panels. It has a profiled other side to finish the board. It's likely it was custom made for a specific application. You didn't list the widths, so figuring out what it is or how its used is difficult.

The board on the right looks like a wall panel board, where they are used one then another, for facing, with the overlapping step/rabbet. Could have been a one time run to panel walls.

The more I think about those two, they likely were made to use on the same installation. The one on the right may be referenced to a "shiplapped" moulding...as the way they fit together. An example below as used for siding.

they do fit together, but you could not make a repeating pattern since one of the pieces only is lapped on one side.

perhaps you use the curvy one in a repeating pattern like siding...

The piece at the right would be the last trim piece, as it has a finished edge to end the repeat.

Though they do fit together, they don't look like they go together style wise.

Those are not standard molding profiles, they may be from the same job but don't necessarily go together. They could be from different jobs, too. In architectural woodworking, millwork is detailed by an architect and can be a one of a kind design for a specific job application. The cove profiles could go with something like a flat board that is shiplapped to join with it as part of a paneling system but that's a guess. They could have been used on cabinetry, paneling or trim work. It's common to run extra on such jobs and this may just be leftovers. I would advertise it with a picture and let the buyer figure out a way to use it.
