The Charter

Respect for the work

❖ The restorer’s intervention must not distort the original work in its form, motifs and decorations.
❖ His job is not to interpret, not to add any elements or colors in order to change the original appearance of the object.
❖ Any missing element must be reconstituted in the same pattern by drawing on photographic documents, drawings, castings, or identical objects.

Reversibility

❖ Techniques and mentalities that have evolved over the centuries, we currently believe that it is necessary to have the possibility of modifying or erasing a restoration.
❖ The use of reversible, stable, non-yellowing products is essential so that the material and the appearance of the work do not degrade after the restorer’s intervention.
