To clean and restore painted or varnished wood objects, determine the structure and components of the applied layers, our flexible stereomicroscopes with table or floor stand are ideal tools.
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
