Bourgeois Interiors, Oświęcim Castle

Residential interiors on display at the exhibition are an attempt to reconstruct the décor of houses in pre-war Oświęcim. The majority of exhibits was donated to the museum by inhabitants of the town and its surroundings. A living room is one of the rooms on display as a place for festive meetings and dinner parties. A wooden folded table for 12 people and a sideboard are the highlights of the room. This furniture set was made in the Oświęcim Salesian Workshop in 1930 as a wedding gift for a couple from Oświęcim. An early 20th century piano from Lipsk stands next to it. On the walls, there are photographs and a 19th-century tapestry with a hunting scene. There is also an elaborately decorated two-door wardrobe with a display cabinet. China dessert and dinner tableware is arranged on the shelves. The displayed exhibits date to the 1920s and 1930s. You can also see charming porcelain figurines from the 1st half of the 20th century. There is also a beautiful sculpture of Diana from the workshop of the inter-war sculptor, professor and rector of the Krakow Academy of Fine Arts, Konstanty Laszczka.
