Dowry chest cleaning
Work on dowry chest cleaning and conservation continues
The museum currently has a quite impressive dowry chest collection – around 200 units. Most of them already before transportation to museum have been in bad condition both from usage perspective and storage conditions
It is delight, that with the preproject Nr.EEZLV04 / INP / 2013/4 „Ostas noliktavas restaurācija Latvijas Etnogrāfiskajā brīvdabas muzejā” (Restoration of the Harbor Warehouse in The Ethnographic Open-Air Museum of Latvia) project implementation within the EEA Financial Mechanism Norwegian Financial Mechanism program “Conservation and Revitalization of Cultural and Natural heritage” we will restore approximately 100 chests, paying a lot of time to disinfection, disinfection and partial preservation.
