Damage from shattered showcase

While the glass showcase top was made of safety glass, and shattered into mostly small pieces, the force of falling glass was great enough to sever one of the tassels on the object. This tassel was removed from the shards of glass at the bottom of the showcase and taken back to the Conservation lab to be repaired.
