    Learn more about the condition, care, and recommended treatment for your antique! As part of its mission of public service, at no charge, the Winterthur/University of Delaware Program in Art Conservation consults on condition, care, and possible treatment of objects.

By appointment only (call 302.888.4786). Free admission. Note: Limit no more than three objects per appointment. Monetary appraisals will not be given.
