Sounds like an old windage tray. Racers used them all the time to help keep the oil at the bottom of the pan. Also helped to keep oil off crank and hopefully improve performance slightly. Off roaders liked them because they would keep oil from climbing the side of the pan when at steep side angles. If your rings are ok, I don't think it would make that much difference in oil consumption.
