Hi! I found this in San Francisco. I was curious what it is and if it is work anything. It is about 4" x 4" and the material feels like ceramic.

Thank you in advance for the help!

i think you found an artifact that was originated from one of the asian countries like japan, china or malaysia. if that was a hundred years of age or more, that was considered as a treasure and you can donate it in a museum and be placed on their archives. you did find a treasure. awesome!

I can't tell you much about it but it looks interesting. To me, it appears to have been made by pressing clay into a negative mold (making a positive form in the clay). The back of it appears uneven and sunken, hinting at this method. If it was a one of a kind sculpture or carving, I would expect the back to be flat or smooth. A good place to start your research would be to get the inscriptions and seals translated. With better pics, there might even be someone on this forum who could help.
