Sorry to hear about the fate of your piece. But I think there may be some hope for the piece in regards to your TL testing theory. Some time ago I purchased a book similar in nature to yours called Allen's Authentication of Ancient Chinese Bronzes by Anthony J Allen. There is a section in the book dedicated to using TL testing to date bronzes using samples of remnants of the clay core still lodged in crevices of the vessels. He mentions that in 2001 he brought the pieces to Wollongong University for the testing and cost around $120 per test.
