    I have absolutely no idea. Good Luck. I'll be watching to see if anyone knows what it is.

    Agree. Newspaper print plate. Maybe for an advert? I see an animal in it but would not have guessed 'dog'. Also, I think that is a hand in the center, not a foot. The hand is grasping an object...

    Yes. A printing press plate. I was in the printing business for nearly 30 years and have seen many examples. The oldest that I have seen are the wood print blocks. This may even pre-date that. Great find!
