Treatment of an Inlaid Alabaster Plate from India
This object was damaged in transit from India. The goal of the treatment was to return the object to a condition suitable for display in a private collector's home. The repair utilized a very stable, strong, clear, and yet reversible synthetic resin to re-adhere the broken fragments. Fortunately the owner had scrupulously collected even the tiniest fragments, leaving the rejoined break edges almost invisible.
