Electronic Cataloging Project Entry #58

December 7, 2012

Dec7.jpgMonday had us up in the air, working with our E. F. Caldwell & Co chandelier in the Reception Hall. Chloe and I brought in a tall ladder and lift (with the help of our Preparator, Che) in order to clean and condition report it.

While I didn't mind traveling up to the main part of the chandelier with my dust brush and flashlight inspecting for any issues—I admit I was too scared to take the lift all the way to the ceiling. Luckily, Che was brave enough to go to the top to help us measure the entire length (nearly 13 feet). We also made sure to get photographs and affix a label to one of the arms.
