Language: Original   -   Translation
Abstract: The bachelor thesis deals with the consolidation
and conservation of a Greek folding mirror made
of a copper alloy with numerous old restorations
in the Collection of Classical Antiquities, National
Museums in Berlin. In autumn 2020, a historical
addition was discovered in the form of agalvanoplastic reconstruction. This represents an
interesting approach to filling in missing sections
from the second half of the 20th century. The
work examines the restoration history of the
object, as well as the restoration ethics as a
central element of the further restoration
measures: the appropriateness and possible
options for the preservation of the galvanoplastic
reconstruction as a supplementary element.
