Abstract:

The paper concerns glass decoration on a woman’s levitté gown from 1720 (from the collection of the National Museum in Cracow, Poland), richly decorated with small pieces of faceted plate glass. The pieces of decoration were analyzed and determined using non destructive testing methods at the labs of the AGH University of Science and Technology (Akademia Górniczo-Hutnicza) in Cracow. Results have demonstrated the need to avoid cleaning by washing in water, a fact which should be drawn to the attention of conservators
