Memorial to J Isham

Wall marble monument to John Isham; 1716; 15th c Antechapel, All Souls College

The monument was heavily soiled and required surface treatment. Different conservation cleaning techniques were used to remove surface soiling from the marble surface as well as from polychrome areas. After cleaning, engraved lettering was in-painted in black. Structural intervention was also required. Upon completion of the structural and surface treatment, a protective wax layer was applied to the surface.
