Behind-the-Scenes: Artifact Cleaning and Conservation

Prayer Rail

Prayer Rail

Prayer rails - compare before conservation treatment and after
If you look closely at the photo to the left (click the photo for a larger image), you can see that one of these rails looks different. The rail on the left has been carefully cleaned with a non-abrasive solution and buffed with a soft cloth to remove tarnish.

Note the shiny spot near the top of both rails. This wear spot comes from years of set up and take down for funerals.
