Abstract: The first part of the thesis includes the historical classification, the documentation of several damages and an extended technological examination of the sleigh. Besides the textiles and the wooden construction, the paint layers were examined. For that purpose various microscopical (light-, polarisation- and SEM-microscopy) and microchemical methods werde used. As a result of the technological examination, five different painting layers were found. The second part includes the elaboration of a concept for a treatment on the basis of the technological examination. For that purpose tests for the consolidation of the paint layers had been made.
