Rare antique Japanese Woodblock Stamp for Printing, Meiji era / before 1900
Beautifully preserved, except for the few minor imperfections due to age (which can be seen in images). I believe it's a unique piece of nihonga. The base of the block is cherry wood and those two peacocks are probably made out of metal, perhaps bronze. It was very probably used for single color prints on washi/textiles (Kimono) or embossing. Size: 40 x 18 cm and 5 cm thick.
