Wall Tablet to Richard Berens
Carrara marble, black marble; 1849; carved inscription painted in black
Surface soiling was removed with dry and wet cleaning methods. Areas containing greasy surface deposits were swabbed with Acetone on cotton wool. A revival solution was used to bring back the dark colour of the black 'marble'. The missing inscription was in-painted. A protective layer of Renaissance wax was applied on the clean and dry stone surface.
