Bronze mirror. Flat and round. One side has relief decoration of four Chinese characters (鸞鳳和鳴, luan feng he ming): "May the luan (fantastic bird) and the phoenix sing together harmoniously." A wish for marital concord, so this may have been a wedding gift.
There is a central boss with a red silk cord threaded through with an elaborate knot, metal fastener, and three-part tassel. The other side is flat, lightly gilt, and patinated in places.
