There is a whole specialty foundry genre for plaques - memorials, historic sites, medallions on buildings and so on.  I been through one before.  I don't know that there'd be any ability to cast a curved one, but they have such slick processes for the casting it would be worth asking....and checking out the cost before making a pattern etc for a flat one.  You send them the artwork and the casting comes back....have it done in an alloy that can be annealed and then head to the brake press (I'd make short 'gentle' die, maybe from AL and bump the annealed bronze).
