Exploding showcases

Sometime in the night, the top of a glass showcase shattered for no apparent reason. The following morning Conservators Michael and Sheldon were called to the scene in order to assess any damage to objects and take them away for conservation work. The object in the showcase was carefully lifted while Sheldon excavated string tassels from under the broken glass
