It looks to me rather like a Japanese hand mirror (see image) which has had the handle broken off. I see two Japanese characters at lower left, and trees are a common type on mirrors. Can you show the other side, which I am guessing is very smooth?

Thank you Alan. It's not in my possession yet. I'm going to see it on Thursday.
