Catalogue Description: Mirror, circular, quite thin, of medium size, of the Han "T L V" type. Bronze. The back has the usual pierced round knob in the center set in a square decorated with T-shaped projections on the middle of each side of the square, one of the L-shapes issuing from the outer edge of the field opposite each T, and one of the inverted V-shapes similarly placed opposite each angle of the frame, set in a ground of fantastic animals, birds, men and scrolls and small regularly disposed nipples, all done in low relief. Between this field and the higher broad rim is a narrow band of oblique lines. The rim has a narrow band of zigzags and a broader border of scrolls. The front is spotted rather dirty yellow and the back is dark silver gray.
