Conservation of the Huber Collection

Conservation of the Huber Collection is a pressing issue. Jonathon Meurs asked Jenny Dickens of the marine section in Heritage Victoria (9628 5913). Items could be stabilised (i.e. sealed in airtight containers) for about $1000; desalination is the second option. Electrolysis to clean up the bronze would require an x-ray first (@ $50) and then cost about $2000-4000 as a job lot.
