The Textile Conservation Centre, Hampton Court Palace, Apartment 22,
East Molesey, England has dealt with silk painting supports. One I
saw on a visit there in 1985 was an early silk fabric stretched
across an oval wood support. I am uncertain of the exact date.  The
conservator in charge of this treatment was Sherry Doyal.  The
Centre does share treatment reports with other conservators.
