This ceiling panel was originally produced for a late 19th century mansion in Chicago. Over the years the panels had been successively painted over by various owners. The current owner wished to retrieve the original handpainted stencils. Parma was able to successfully remove the asphaltum, oil paint, and casein overpaint that had been used to cover over the stencils, revealing a 19th century decoration that had not been seen in decades.
