He is a commercial copper printing plate, dating from the early 20th Century. The images here offering an insight into life at the time.

These were basically photographic images transposed onto purpose made copper plates, which are then arranged and fixed at whatever point of the page they were to be used at by means of being pinned and mounted to a block of wood, as this one is.  

The plates show how far copper plate printing had come by the early 20th century, with images such as these being used to print off great volumes of newspaper and magazine articles

Use these unique plates purely for decorate effect and add non glass frame, or more functional coasters and trivets. Or maybe collect a few as a decorative project as wall tiles. 

Some verdigris can be found on this piece
