Hand painted wallpaper

From: Samantha Joiner <sjoiner<-a>

We have a part of a roll of wallpaper, which is hand painted with
what looks like gouache pigment onto heavy weight watercolour paper.
The paper is rolled but not tightly. It was found in a 18th Century
house. What would be the best way to mechanically clean it? Would it
be best to be hinge mounted within a window mount, as it is to be
displayed?
