bed with a printed text coloured by corrosion products and with a noticeable mark of a stone
Slips of paper used during the previous repair
Most stones were underlay by paper rips of various forms and size to regulate a desirable height in the bed of the filigree. The paper was framed into beds according to the shape of the stone and depth of the bed. These beds come obviously from repairs in the 19th century. The rips were procured from two different Dutch written books, manuscripts and in several cases coloured hand-made paper.
Paper was harmed by corrosive waste products, in many cases it was entirely degraded. At restoration was the paper in stone beds replaced by lime wood. The restorer Mgr. František Křivánek preserved paper beds and they were deposited for study purposes.
