There is full address in your certificate.
For me, this is the first time I see the Cyprus domestic silver hallmarks used 1995 to date not stamped but printed, on a piece of paper and glued at the back of a wooden framework. If CAO stands for Cyprus Assay Office it is the sponsor's mark. As of 1995, it is the responsibility of the maker or sponsor to register their maker's mark with the Cyprus Assay Office Registry. Each mark is a unique combination of frame-shape and initials or letters that indicate the name of the maker or manufacturer. The National Mark for silver items hallmarked in Cyprus is what is described by the assay office as an archaic fish with stylized water lines in a rectangular frame-shape accompanied by a rectangular fineness mark.
The number K 46811 could be a reference number.

We certify that this object is made of silver sheet .......
From my experience I warn you that it is a thin sheet.
But if you can't resist the impulse of just taking the icon out of the frame, go for it.

Usually, to give them rigidity they are reinforced with resin.
Sometimes they are silver foil coupled with aluminum foil.
