We are pleased to present to you this Victorian Hand Oil Painted Winter Scene Cottage with Woods and Pond on a Brass Flue Cover.One of my favorite forms of folk art, flue covers and this one is wonderfully painted. These pieces were a needed house hold item at the turn of the last century. In the summer you needed to takes the wood stove pipes out and clean them and cover that “hole in the chimney” The prevented varmints and cold air from coming into your home and was a way of “artfully decorating” for the summer. This one is a very New Hampshire winter scene, the cottage, the barns, the woods and pond out in the snow covered field. The painting is surrounded with holly berries and leaves. This piece is well painted and a good example of a Sunday painter. You will LOVE this and will not be disappointed.
DIMENSIONS: 8 ¼” diameter
CONDITION: very nice vintage condition.
