Late 17th century Dutch cabinet decorated with Japanese lacquer panels and inlaid with a motif known as seaweed marquetry. A stereomicroscope was used to analyze and clean the surface, to identify damage, and to take and analyze samples. © Rijksmuseum Amsterdam

With the help of a floor stand even areas that are difficult to access can be investigated. Damages to the cabinet were analyzed under the microscope and documented with a digital camera. This area of damage was covered with a painting of a flower. This was done in Europe, probably with oil paint. Since they form part of the history of the object, it was decided not to remove these overpaintings. © Rijksmuseum Amsterdam
