This old flue cover has the painted "frame" of red and gold surrounding the poignant artwork showing a boy and girl with a playful kitten. The girl is dressed in a blue dress and straw hat with pink bows on both. She holds a kitten reaching upwards to a stem of cherries dangled by the boy. He is dressed in a suit of dark blue short pants with red tie and white collar and cuffs. His straw hat is filled with freshly picked cherries. Behind them is a wooden bench with her doll. On the ground are his racket and ball amid the wild flowers in bloom. The art is on an octagon-shaped paper attached to the cardboard backing. This shape cannot be seen with the glass plate in place. The original metal frame survives with only a slight deformity. The painted "frame" has a small bit of paint missing near one edge. Sold as found. 9.5 inches in diameter.
