① it is made according to the handed down bronze mirror.

During the Republic of China, bronze mirrors were unearthed in Henan, Shanxi, Anhui, Zhejiang and other places. Antique dealers made some antique mirrors according to the shape and pattern of ancient bronze mirrors. When antique dealers make antique mirrors, they strive to pursue novelty and chicness. Therefore, they mix many subjective elements, and the bronze mirrors they make are far from the real ones.

② reconstruction of old mirrors.

The transformation of old bronze mirrors was a common phenomenon in the period of the Republic of China. The reason for this phenomenon is that the old bronze mirrors are low in price, and they are not easy to be seen through processing and finishing, so they can pass off the broken mirrors as high-priced complete bronze mirrors. The Imperial Palace Museum in Beijing has several bronze mirrors of the Han and Tang Dynasties that were reconstructed during the Republic of China. The edges of these bronze mirrors or the decorative parts deep into the outer area are incomplete and damaged. Antique dealers cut them along the damaged parts, and then polish and make them old, thus forming a complete bronze mirror. The reformed bronze mirrors give people a novel feeling, but careful observation will find that the shape, button system and pattern proportion of this kind of bronze mirrors are very incongruous.


③ add models after the old mirror.

Generally speaking, the model year is added to some ancient mirrors with a clear age, most of which are rare ones. In the Republic of China, the model year is added to the bronze mirrors of the Han Dynasty. First, the initial characters of the inscriptions are removed, and then the melted silver solution is used to outline the model year. Silver is applied on the silver gray mirror back, and the color difference is very small. It is difficult to identify after being used again.
