This is a neat old pressed tin flue cover with an Art Nouveau motif around a Roman or Greek Revival picture in the center. Flue covers originally became popular in Victorian times, as they were hung in front of a room’s chimney opening to hide the ugly (and drafty) hole that was left after removing the stovepipe that provided heat to the home during the winter. This one has four openings on each pointed corner that you could put a nail through if needed, or you could use the hanger on the back. It is diamond shaped and the tin has a finish that looks like oxidized brass, probably purposely made to look this way. It measures 11.5 by 12.5 inches and is in very good condition with minor wear and no damage. Please see the photos as they show the condition well.
