Surface clean. Remove tarnish.
The object is in good condition overall. There is dirt and dust on the surface of the object. The object is very lightly tarnished/discoloured. There are the remains of old conservation cleaning products present.
The dirt and dust was removed using cottons swabs of Acetone (propan-1-one/dimethyl ketone). Old cleaning product residues were removed using cotton swabs of White Spirit (composition variable - petroleum distillate) followed by Acetone. Old residues and dirt in the decorative recesses of the object were removed mechanically under the microscope using the end of a wooden cocktail stick The object was renumbered using magic colour black ink applied on a brush.
