What are these covers for?

This house has these floral covers near the ceiling throughout the rooms (look at pic). I am guessing they are to cover something that used to be there, but I really do not know what would be placed so high on a wall. Does anyone know what purpose they serve or the history of what the holes they cover were for?

The picture loaded sideways. The wood paneling is on the ceiling.

Probably old flue vents for wood stove/heater.

For some reason, cell phone pix usually end up sideways. See if there is a portrait (vertical) or landscape (horizontal) setting you can change.
