      I wonder if anyone has suggestions on removing mold from indie composition dolls from the 1920s. These are new acquisitons with significant provenance which led us to accept them despite their condition when they were brough to us. We have controlled the humidity in our department to avoid emcouraging the mold. However, the hepa filter vacuum we have doen’t have attachements small enough to get to the problem areas. Can I freeze them? I’m concerned about moisture destroying the composition material if the freezing goes wrong.

      Anyone have ideas or experience?

      Thank you, Laura Furman, Curator of Colelctions, Midway Village Museum, Rockford, IL
