A similar mirror with the same inscription, in the Cleveland Museum of Art, is illustrated by Ju-hsi Chou, Circles of Reflection: The Carter Collection of Chinese Bronze Mirrors, The Cleveland Museum of Art, 2000, pp. 32-3, no. 11, where the inscription, which invokes general blessings, is translated, p. 33. The author notes that a mirror of this type was found in the tomb of Liu Sheng, the Prince Jing of Zhongshan (d. 113 BC), who was buried in Mancheng, Hebei province. Although the mirror would have been made somewhat earlier, it shows the popularity of this type of mirror during this period.
