This is a metal type picture from South America. I am guessing it is brass with a deep embossed picture. It is 7 1/2" long X 5" wide and very heavy. I do not have any other info on this. Pictures are attached.

Have you had the metal tested on this?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

No metal has not been tested.

Hi Patty,
I do recommend having the metal tested, which can be done at any gold or silver buyer for free.
I can recommend some dealers who specialize in South American objects and antiquities for you.
I can opt-out and open your question again to all the experts here.
Please let me know how you would like to proceed.
