Subject: Container for Sumerian tablet

Container for Sumerian tablet

From: Wendy Jones <wajones>
Date: Tuesday, May 25, 1993
We have received a Sumerian tablet (pillow shaped, 2" x 3") for
rehousing. It is currently in a jewelry box of solid clamshell
construction--lined with faux velvet.  This is in an acidic box with a
typed transcription, all of which is placed in an even larger, more
acidic, box.

Does anyone have suggestions for securely housing the clay tablet in a
cushioned, protective environment?  We would prefer to be able to keep
the paperwork with the artifact.  Thank you for your thoughts on this.
