No registration mark (kento) on the keyblock, it was probably used for single color prints (sumi ink). 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 probably cedar or cherry, the 2 peacocks are made out of metal, probably bronze or steel. Can be used for printing on washi/textiles or embossing. Size is 40 x 18 cm and 5 cm thick.
