Maiolica dish after conservation
How do we care for the collection?
One of the Holburne’s main purposes is to preserve the things that have been entrusted to our care. Previous generations have created and left behind beautiful and fascinating objects in the hope that future generations will be able to enjoy and learn from them too. Our job as custodians of the collection today is to care for it not only by repairing damage, but by doing our best to prevent deterioration in the future.
