Dear Yannick, thanks for a great presentation. I was very much struck by all the different types of cases and modes of open display that were shown in your slides. I wondered whether you had found any more information about why certain cases were constructed in the ways that they were? I was especially intrigued by the glass window case above the table desk at the Louvre. I see that the table cases used at the British Museum look like fairly standard issue for the BM at this time, but were any of the cases specially designed for these collections, and what was taken into account? I completely understand if this material is absent from the archive of course! Thanks again, Claire

Hi Claire, let me congratulate you and your team for the wonderful conference you managed to organise, it was a great opportunity to keep on working on our research topics despite of the current situation we have to deal with. The study concerning the window and table cases is still in progress, I've already find many quotations of such displays in museums guides and I expect to find more details (and maybe few pictures) when libraries will be definitely reopened. Few informations can be found in illustrated press (I can send you pictures if you wish) and I have to clear sales catalogues as well. A lot to do, as you see, but the topic is really stimulating!
