Abstract [en]

During my internship at the Upholstery conservation department at the Metropolitan Museum of art in New York, I came across a chair that caught my interest and therefore I chose to dedicate the last two months of my internship, investigating this chair. It was said about the chair that it had the original upholstery and cover, but some questions appeared. These questions I have tried to solve, as I will reveal in the following, by using mostly non-intrusive methods, in attempt to see how much useful information this approach can provide, concerning frame structure, inner-upholstery, showcover and possible campaigns (interventions).

I found out, that it was possible to gather a great amount of useful information. In fact I will go so far as to claim that I found out even more than I would have found out, by  isassembling the object manually.
