    Does anyone have any advice/references for the conservation of a
    C19 condom?

    The item in question is part of the Warwick Castle archive, held
    at the County Record Office in Warwick.  It was found with some
    letters dated 1853 (I do not know if the letters were from
    France).  My Conservator friend would be grateful for advice.
