Khmer Bronze Mirror - Stunning Surface Patina!

Southeast Asia, Cambodia, Khmer Empire (Angkor culture), ca. 800 to 1300 CE. A round cast bronze mirror of simple form with its reflective face covered in a silvery, still somewhat reflective patina - remarkable for its age. The other side of the mirror has raised edges and a tiny loop handle. Bronze objects like this one were signs of prestige, owned by the wealthy and elite in Khmer society. Size: 5.5" W (14 cm)

Condition: Small nicks from around the edges and a small drilled hole through one side that is not contemporary with the casting of the piece. Green and grey mottled and encrusted patina on the non-reflective side; the reflective side has a gorgeous silvery-grey smooth patina.

Provenance: private southern California, USA collection, acquired before 2000
