Papier mache

The Drottningholm Palace is the home of the Swedish Royal Family and
was the first Swedish object to enter the UNESCO List of World
Heritage in 1991. The castle is home to a 1766 Palace theatre
(Drottningholms slottsteater) considered the best preserved of its
kind in the world which is still in use.

The Palace is cared for by The Swedish National Property Board, and
is currently undergoing restoration. The surfaces of the auditorium
in the Palace theatre are more or less unchanged since 1766. This
work includes documentation and conservation but will also probably
need reconstruction of certain decorative elements in papier-mache.
For this matter I am urgently looking for a conservator specialised
in 18th century papier-mache.
