We believe this was used underneath a stove. The bottom, which faced the floor, has advertising for the company. The bottom is made of planks of wood.
The advertising is embossed into the wood, or stamped. The tin/metal wrapping, looks like it has a woodgrain design.
This was probably an attempt to make the floor protector look more attractive. Like linoleum or Wood paneling. This item comes from our old farmhouse.We believe it's from the mid century. Metal has some rust in the wood has some fading, scratches, standing. Overall, in very good condition for its age and use.
