A shirt with a mandarin collar and long sleeves, sewn from red satinet. The rectangular front part is decorated with a black embroidered border featuring a recurring star motif. A fastening on the side, along the front part.
The exhibit shown is a shirt of a Russian POW from 1916, given to the Museum by Adam Wrzosek (a physician, anthropologist, medicine historian and professor of the Jagiellonian University). Being a head physician at one of the Austrian hospitals in Kraków and working also at a camp for POWs in Dąbie near Kraków, Wrzosek met, at his work, soldiers of various nationalities who often had cloths and souvenirs brought from their homes. Wrzosek saw it as an opportunity to gather a collection for the Ethnographic Museum in Kraków developed at that time. During WWI, he collected 192 items “from the folk industry.” They include the shirt in question, marked with a hand-written label pinned to the shirt saying ”a shirt from a Russian POW.”
