This may be from Lemuria / Mu.
The mother land. The repeating spiral symbol looks a lot like the hieratic letter H, the alphabetical symbol of the Four Great Primary Forces, "the Sacred Four."

Oh, and the "artifact from Atlantis?"
I can't get the pics to load but I can say one thing without even seeing it - it's not from Atlantis.
Atlantis never, ever existed.

The final word from my guys:
"There is no doubt at all that this is upside down. There is also no doubt that the motifs are Chinese and derived from archaic bronzes of the Zhang (1500 - 1028 BC) and the Zhou (1028 - 221 BC) dynasties. Suggestions of Mayan and Greek origin are nonsense, as is the story that this was found under the sea. The patination has not been created by seawater but by a factory in China sometime during the 20th century. It is hard to date these modern pieces but I would guesstimate at the 1970s. Obviously I cannot see the top but it would originally have had some kind of pricket to hold the handle; presumably now missing. Still, it is a fun decorative object and I value it as such. $100."
