Reason for treatment
Dismantle piece and restick.
Dirty surface. Old adhesive in join, which sounds unstable. Also misaligned.
Cleaned with 50/50 distilled water and Industrial methylated spirits (ethanol,methanol), using soft brush. Dried with Kleenex tissue. Dismantled in a vacuum of Acetone (propan-1-one/dimethyl ketone) as unclear what the old glue is. Didnt take join apart. Placced swabs of cotton wool of distilled water over break and join collapsed. Cleaned along breaks. Left to dry. Rebonded join with HMG heatproof and waterproof adhesive (cellulose nitrate). Excess removed with Acetone (propan-1-one/dimethyl ketone) swab.
Found in the museum, marked Hn Rm, indicating that it was once exhibited in the Hamilton Room and was probably part of the Hamilton Collection.
