Pharmacist's Room, House with a Tower, Biecz

Apteka - fragment ekspozycji

Please look up – the polychrome larch ceiling has survived from the time of the building's construction and complements the space that’s dominated by the broadly defined decoration, from Biedermeier-style furniture, portraits, and genre scenes adorning the walls, to the collection of mantel clocks and 'knickknacks'. Everyday-use items tell the story of commonplace decoration from the 17th to the end of the 19th century. The display cases hold silver trays, pipes and porcelain coffee sets; each element is made with the utmost care and attention to detail. Looking at the escritoires and the old desk's equipment, we can see many decorative techniques – intarsia (wood inlaying, combining different types of wood), inlaying with mother-of-pearl or precious stones, and engraving.

Faience tableware, crystalware, and glassware are stark contrasts to the cold weapons, a full dress uniform, and a nobleman’s żupan. It is worth noting the 19th-century karabela (type of sabre) with the phrase ‘God save Poland’, which belonged to Gen. Bolesław Wieniawa-Długoszowski, Józef Piłsudski's adjutant.
