The plaque has not been on view for many years, if ever, and is being included in Living by the Book: Monks, Nuns, and Their Manuscripts, a focus show scheduled for July 13-September 15, 2013. The plaque has damages around the perimeter edge but the central image is intact and in good condition.
Recent cleaning and stabilization revealed the maker's initials IL for Jacques Laudin on the front of the plaque to the right of the coat of arms. The decoration of the miter was also altered. Cleaning revealed a white miter with three clusters of imitation gemstones.
