More About this Item


Description: This is an exquisite Tang Dynasty (618-907) gilt bronze square mirror inlaid with precious stones such as turquoise and coral beads. It is covered with gilt and 28 pieces of jade inlaid which is very rare for mirrors of this period. It is probably used by the Emperor and Empress during Tang Dynasty. The four corners of the mirror has four jade mythical animals representing four directions. This is indeed a Tang Dynasty treasure. The mirror surface is also covered with gilt which is extremely rare except those made for the imperial palace. It is surprised that even the mirror collection of Qianlong Emperor does not have a Tang Dynasty gilt mirror.
