Description: Genuine Islamic Persian bronze mirror, circa 1000-1100 AD,
Mirror surface has a flat shape. Mirror surface, fortunately, preserved most of its original reflective lust and you can see your reflection in the mirror
The reverse surface has flat shape with raised edges. There is one concentric circle in the middle and many radial lines, like sun beams, in the outer area. Between radial lines we can see possibly Arabic Calligraphy. More research is needed to solve the enigma. The knob is not complete and we don't know for sure, was it an original design or it was broken later.

Diameter: 8 cm = 80 mm;
Weight: 75.01 g;
Origin: Pakistan or Afghanistan.
You'll get the same item as it is showing in the photos.

Persian Empire
The Persian Empire is any of a series of imperial dynasties centered in Persia (now Iran) with boundaries that fluctuated around that core, extending far into regions that would later become Pakistan, Afghanistan, Tajikistan, and Azerbaijan. The first of these was established by Cyrus The Great over 2,500 years ago, in 550 BC, but the existence of dynastic rule centered in the region was absent after a series of foreign invasions, starting by Arab conquest of Persia and later Mongol Invasion, for an 850 year period from 651 AD until 1501 AD. The main religion was Zoroastrianism, founded by Zarathushtra or so called by the Medes Zoroaster. The Persian empire also had an elite guard for the shah called the immortal.
Dynasties that have been counted as instances of the Persian Empire include:
