Now that you know that this artifact is prone to mold, try to store it in a location where the relative humidity does not go above 65% for an extended period of time or at least use a fan to move the air around the artifact when RH is high in the storage area.Here is the link for treating paintings that have grown mold after hurricane Sandy.
