Reason for treatment
Object in numerous fragments. Surface is deteriorated and presents iridescence but is not flaking. Two fragments had been attached in the past.
Breake interfaces were cleaned with cotton swabs and acetone. Old repair was left. Object was reconstructed using HMG Paraloid B72 (methyl ethyl methacrlylate) applied with a cocktail stick. Excess of adhesive was removed with cotton swabs and acetone. The bowl is incomplete, and it has 6 gaps. One gap was partially filled to give stabilization. The fill was made with a mix of Microballons and Paraloid B72 in acetone. Once the fill dried, it was sanded down to smooth the surface.
