Publication on furniture care

From: Dominique Rogers <do>
Date: Sunday, January 17, 1999
The Furniture Section of the United Kingdom Institute for
Conservation (UKIC) has just published a leaflet on furniture care
that will be of equal interest to curators, collectors and
conservators alike.

The leaflet outlines the common causes of damage to furniture such
as light, climate and insect infestation.  It gives advice on the
handling and moving of furniture items.  The section on cleaning
describes the materials to use including when and how to wax
furniture as well as the special attention required for decorated
furniture and metal fittings. Copies of the leaflet may be purchased
from the UKIC office for 50p each including p&p or 30p each per 50
copies inclusive of postage.
