Just obtained a second hand large chiminea (why I don't know because if it's cold I go in the house). With it came a kind of dished plate with a kinda china mans hat on the top.....whats it for? If I get an answer I will donate a fiver to Mick's slush fund!

It's to stop rain entering them, because if they're left outside with water in them and it freezes, the ice breaks them! ;)

Some just have a "teapot" type lid for covering the chimney when not in use. These seem to be mostly the clay type
The second type, which sounds like the one you have, the chimney is vented and the lid is fitted when in use. These are mostly cast iron and or steel.

Without seeing a picture, difficult to say, but I would suggest that one is to keep the rain out and the other to restrict the air flow so things burn slower in it! :confused:
