Our textile conservator got to wear all these “hats” this week to address some spots on this settee in Gallery 209, the British portraiture gallery.
A whole team helped clean the galleries in a gallery-wide dust-up (or down!). Next time you visit the museum, take a minute to think about all the unseen work that goes into keeping all parts of the museum looking their best.
This week in objects conservation we are working on a 18thC Chinese lacquer table with shell inlay.
This 1740’s French Rococo gilt table is in the lab receiving treatment for an upcoming exhibition in 2021.
