Embroidered silk tapestry

From: Patricia Stroh <pstroh>
Date: Wednesday, October 25, 2000
I need advice on how to store a silk tapestry from the mid-19th
century. It is heavily embroidered on both sides and is 72 x 48
inches. It appears to have been folded for storage for some time and
is rather heavily creased. It is also in rather bad condition as the
silk is torn (practically shredded in some places) and shedding. The
embroidery, however, is quite beautiful and mostly intact, and we'd
like to protect that as much as possible. Any suggestions would be
most welcome.
