Prunted Beaker Restoration - Part One

Watch as our conservator, Stephen Koob, restores a 13th or 14th-century prunted beaker for the 2010 exhibition, Medieval Glass for Popes, Princes, and Peasants. This piece was on loan from the Museum zu Allerheiligen, Shaffhausen, in Switzerland. With painstaking care and precision Koob disassembled the beaker (48 pieces in total, 5% missing), cleaned the fragments and began the process of reassembly.
