Hiring two conservators to conduct a conservation assessment of the museum's ceramics collection of 1,372 individual objects. The collection dates from the early 18th century and includes objects from Europe and China, as well as the United States. The collections are displayed in the historic house museum and used in educational and public programming on the George Washington family, the American Revolution, and the history of Washington, D.C.

Tudor Place Historic House and Garden seeks support for a conservation assessment of porcelain objects on view in the museum and in museum storage. An object-by-object survey of the objects in ceramic and porcelain will identify treatment priorities and make suggestions for the rehousing of objects. Conservator Catharine Valentour with conservator Jane Norman will complete the survey under the supervision of Collections Manager Fay Winkle. The survey will include object registration information provided by Tudor House; photography of each object; condition assessment of object; priority for conservation treatment; proposals for treatment; estimated treatment hours; storage recommendations; and environmental requirements.
