Photos of plasterwork in the Nasrid Palaces from my visit to Granada. The calligraphy is exquisite. Traces of the original pigments remain in nooks and crannies of the plaster - if only we could see it in its fully-colored, ancient glory! reddit.com/gallery/jjyrlh

What to do about this plasterwork

I am in the process of removing some wallpaper from a wall that we were planning to have re-skimmed. In doing so I have noticed that the plaster on part of it is bulging and cracked. I've been using solvite spray on wallpaper stripper which is basically just being absorbed into the blown plaster and it's all now coming away. What can I do to try and preserve as much of the plaster as possible or is this a lost cause? Presumably it's past the point of a re-skim at this stage.

My house, built in 1920. The contractor managed to save a lot of the original plasterwork when he remodeled.

This was found behind the plasterwork either side of an open fire (coal fire) chimney breast at my mum and dad's. Current ideas, maybe lightning rods? Something to do with gas lights? The house is oldish ~100 years so no idea how long they've been there. Any ideas?

The last pieces of ornamental plasterwork cling to the walls in an old, crumbling theater. It went out of business after the 1968 race riots (x-post from /r/modernruins) imgur.com/5FFcBUJ

Archaeologists Discover Roman Fresco Face Down Under the Streets of London - This ornate, hand-painted wall was once considered to be the height of fashion in Londinium. “It is very much a case of one-upsmanship where if someone down the road had a nice plasterwork you had to as well.” smithsonianmag.com/smart-…

Advice please - cracks in ceiling plasterwork.

A bit of background. Bought my first house 6 months ago. UK. Semi-detached. 1930s house. I picked the smallest room in the house to sort out. My plan was reasonably simple - remove paint from everything (including wood, walls and ceilings), replaster, repaint and recarpet (the latter three I was planning to outsource!)

However today I started peeling the artex ceiling off (asbestos free - we had it tested) and I started noticing these cracks in my curved ceiling. I assume they go all the way across the room, but I am a bit scared to pull it all away currently.

I have read that often these cracks are associated with the plasterboards above, which seems logical in my case. Is there anyone here who has more experience than I do of these cracks? If so, I was wondering :

1/. Are these cracks definitely due to the above plasterboard? Or do I need a structural engineer? 2/. What is the recommended way of dealing with them? 3/. Any other general advice?

Thanks!
