John Doubleday (about 1798 – 1856) was a British craftsperson,
restorer, and dealer in antiquities. He was employed by the British
Museum for the last 20 years of his life as a specialist restorer,
perhaps the first person in that role. In 1845 the Portland Vase, a
Roman cameo glass piece, was smashed into hundreds of pieces, and
Doubleday was selected for the restoration. Guided by a watercolour of
the fragments by Thomas H. Shepherd, he glued the vase whole again
within a few months, omitting only 37 small splinters. This restoration
would remain for more than 100 years, until the adhesive grew
increasingly discoloured. In other work for the museum, he cleaned
bronzes from Nimrud, and he at least twice testified in criminal trials.
By the time of his death he had amassed one of the largest collections
of casts of seals in the world. In 2006 William Andrew Oddy of the
British Museum ranked him "in the forefront of the craftsmen-restorers
of his time".

Thigibh a nis le buidheachas
n a gheataibh-san a steach,
Is thigibh fòs le maladh mòr
an cùirtibh naomh a theach :
Is thugaibh dha mòr-bhuidheachas,
ainm beannaichibh gu binn.

Psalm 100: 4


"Beware of the false prophets! They come to you wearing sheep's clothing, but underneath they are hungry wolves! You will recognize them by their fruit. Can people pick grapes from thorn bushes, or figs from thistles?
Matthew 7: 15-16 Complete Jewish Bible

Dear friends, don't trust every spirit. On the contrary, test the spirits to see whether they are from God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world.
]1 John 4:1 Complete Jewish Bible
