Reason for treatment
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.
