Electronic Cataloging Project Entry #53

September 27, 2012

Sept27.jpgChloe and I have been spending our Mondays (closed to the public—so as to not be underfoot) processing objects in the Lake Breakfast Porch and on the Balcony. Just like with Katharine and RJ's studies—we are photographing, measuring, condition reporting, and labeling each object.
This batch of objects has lots of interesting things. The sconces along the walls compliment the chandelier with the same floral and fruit elements. The benches on the balcony each have a different scene in the center of their tapestry upholstery—which I hadn't picked up on before (it is funny how much you notice by looking more closely).  Additionally, the large hanging tapestries on the balcony bring a new element to our labeling, in which I carefully sew labels onto the backing muslin.
