CONSERVATION OF A FAN

SANDRA GREENWALD VIERRA, & BETHUNE GIBSON



4 EVALUATION OF THE PROBLEM

All decisions regarding treatment were not made before work was begun, partly because all of the problems were not revealed until the fan was disassembled. It was evident, however, that the silk of the embroidered panel needed consolidation, that both it and probably the brocade panel would require backing with a silk of the same weight and that the consolidated panel might need the addition of a facing of crepeline to protect it from handling contact in the future.
