Very unusual old dish from Japan, we think bronze, we see many metal colors including evidence of copper content on the bottom and it is weight appropriate for such. The dish is in the shape and style of a hand mirror with tassel, and inside the mirror center cast in high relief a lovely Geisha and Samurai, with screen, bonsai, and other decorations. Making it even more special is the back, not plain but with very small bonsai designs all over with waterfall, rocks and mountains, probably hard to see in the photos. This beautiful metalwork is 7 & 3/8" tall and in very good condition with some mild wear from age and a rich patina to the metal.
