Subject: Removing parchment from glass

Removing parchment from glass

From: Judith Murphy <jamurphy>
Date: Friday, December 17, 1999
I have received a call for help from a museum in Ruidoso, NM, which
has two documents believed to be parchment, that were framed with
glass and got wet sometime between 1974 and 1997, and are adhered to
the glass. The original frames also suffered damage.  Is there a
treatment for these problems?  Is there someone in the area who
could look at them and do a proposal?

Please contact Barbara Bartuccio at the Harmon Museum,
1-800-263-5929. She says her e-mail is extremely unreliable.
