I am really at a loss as to how to categorize this object; so, please forgive me if I have designated incorrectly. It's kind of a curio, but maybe a folk craft - it's neither fish nor fowl. It measures 8x11 inches and it crafted from hammered copper.
.The label on the back shows "Priddat's Studio Design."
