This appears to be a metal (copper?) replica of a postcard. It is stamped E P CHARLTON & CO on the back. I know the company published postcards, but have not seen other metal objects by them. The front is a scene in Ottawa, Canada, and is printed with POST OFFICE AND PARLIAMENT BLDS OTTAWA. The border is leaves and flowers (irises) and curves slightly upward. It appears to be rolled over the edge toward the back, so perhaps it is two different metals joined together. It is about 5" wide and 4" high. Has anyone seen anything like this this before?
