Non-destructive analytical methods, based mostly on the ion beam analysis, will be used for the characterization of the following 17th and 18th century materials: faience, especially wine-mugs that are Slovenian specialty, tin objects and cut-and-polished glass. Group-properties of particular objects will be determined and compared to the group properties of different producers, with an aim to identify possible home production. The results will also determine the type of material, which will be helpful for the conservation or restoration procedures. The elemental composition may also answer the question about the authenticity of the object, which we intend to apply on the oil-painting pigments.
