Reason for treatment
Post-survey

Treatment proposal
Remove from fabric mount. Remove adhesive residues. Apply big number if neccessary.

Condition
Amulet was pinned to a fabric mount and old adhesive residues were located on the reverse. The surface was also quite grubby.

Treatment details
The amulet was removed from the mount by prising back the pins using a scalpel under magnification. The surface was cleaned with swabs of 70:30 IMS to distilled water swabs and this also softened the adhesive on the reverse. This was then mechanically removed under magnification using a scalpel.
