Object Name: Figure of a horse, ancient Cypriot
Dimensions: Body: Height: 38mm Length: 55mm Width: 24mm
Head: Height: 36mm Length: 33mm
Description: Ceramic model of a horse, possibly a toy. Pale soft surface, previously repaired and misaligned, head has become detached, staining on one of the ears. One of the saddle ‘foot holders’ had been previously re-adhered, and there are small amounts of surface deposits in crevices.
Treatment: The surface of the figure was cleaned with a soft brush, and a dental vacuum on low suction. The surface was consolidated with a 10% solution of Paraloid B72, the old adhesive removed using warm water cotton wool swabs. The head was re-adhered using Paraloid B72. Fills were added for support around the neck using micro-balloons in a 20% solution of Paraloid B72. The fill was retouched using acrylic pigments.
The museum accession number was applied to the base using the museum standard.
