Description

Sorry, we could not translate this listing to English.
This magnet commemorates Alphonsine, the mechanical pull toy bulldog made in France around the 19th century. One of these expensive toys was extremely damaged and presented a challenging conservation project when it arrived in Memoria Technica horology workshop in Seattle. Teaming up with Ségolène Girard, paper conservator from l'Operatorium in Paris, the toy bulldog was conserved to its former glory.

A lenghtly article was written on the topic by Ségolène Girard as published on Memoria Technica blog. http://memoriatechnica.com

Based on the facts that many specialized publications are hard to access for trained conservators, and we want our publications to remain free - we created this commemorative magnet in hope that you will support us into writing more articles ! It will help us write our next article with a challenging paper object conservation as well, which will be commemorated by magnet n°2 ! and so on.

This cute lithograph-like bulldog was designed by French art student and traditional printing-queen Marguerite Brousse @margothik She will be our partner for more magnets, as we wish to encourage her as well into taking up a career in engraving and print making because working hand in hand with contemporary artists is something we believe in as conservators. Dialogues with artists helps us understand the future of conservation now, and lack of communication from our recently emerged field needs it more than ever.

We are extremely hopeful in the future of conservation. Be part of building up a pop culture that brings awareness to heritage preservation, join us aboard !
