Repair, consolidate and re-pack as necessary.
Multiple fragments in unsuitable packing.
One of the nylon threads used to hang the bowl was not secure.
Packed object with a plastazote lining within a crystal box. The box was labelled with the registration number on the lid and on a tyvek label inserted under the packing.
The nylon line was re-tied and the knots adhered using HMG heatproof and waterproof adhesive (cellulose nitrate) for extra strength.
