Casket with Design of Horsemen


Description Conservation Exhibitions Provenance Credit
Description This casket features a silver inlaid design of horsemen (possibly falconers) within roundels.
Conservation

The silver inlay was irregularly tarnished from exposure to sulfurous pollutants. The inlays were cleaned using organic solvents and a vinyl eraser. After cleaning, the casket was coated with a resin to reduce tarnishing and abrasive polishing in the future.
