If original it would be Early 20th century, around Meiji Period.
The flat side would be litterally mirror polished, usually those mirrors also have an handle attached, but maybe this one being small didn't need it or got broken?

Thanks Manuel

It looks as if the handle has snapped off the bottom, I can see a rough place where something broke off.

are these items worth anything?

I  just got it for a few euro  as I admired the workmanship and happy to know now what it is

i'm not an expert of mirrors, but sure they value more than some euro
WIth a quick research i found this sold on catawiki that has exactly same design as yours https://www.catawiki.it/l/19624787-bronze-hand-mirror-signed-fujiwara-masashige-Japan-early-20th-century-meiji-period 

the price looks quite cheap especially considered the lacquered box.
Mirrors from that maker are also exhibited in museums https://www.britishmuseum.org/collection/object/A_1944-0401-2
