Ancient Artifact Review 03 : Antique Tang Bronze Mirror ( 7-10th Century)

This is an antique bronze mirror from Tang Dynasty ( 618-906 CE). I acquired it from an antique shop in Vietnam during my work assignment there almost 10 years ago.

Diameter: 12cm (4 ¾ in).
Similar item with better condition was sold at USD3750 at Christie's in June 2011
