An example of a packing for small toys
Abstract: This bachelor-thesis deals with the packaging of small toys from the collection of the Altonaer
Museum in Hamburg. Exemplarily, 1000 objects are to be packed in suitable packing which is
to be found.
The packing has to meet the criteria of protective, preventive conservation, as well as presenting the object and helping to find it quickly. The correct labelling of the packing and the data collection of the objects in the database “DokBase” shall make the management of the objects easier.
Finally, the packing is to be calculated more precisely. The price and total working time are to
be calculated and possibilities of financing to be listed.
This assignment is part of a complete concept of re-organisation of the storeroom for toys.
However, its use is not limited to small toys, but may also be an example for any small objects.
In the limits of the thesis, it will just be possible to work on a small part of the object in the storeroom. Therefore it focuses on the packing of small toys found in a glass cabinet, which is mainly filled with tin toys and objects made of plastic and wood.
