The stove was manufactured in the maiolica factory in Nieborów, which was established in 1881 by Prince Michał Radziwiłł. It comes from the destroyed mansion in Krzyszkowice near Myślenice and it was renovated in 1977. It is a decorative item and an element of the interior design of the museum in Myślenice, the so-called Mayor’s Office.
The stove consists of white tiles with an ornament decorated with cobalt showing Polish noblemen and royal coats of arms as well as some fancy coats of arms and plant motifs. In the middle, under the crown, there are two coats of arms, Leliwa and Rogala. The stove is ornamented with various shades of blue. Katalog wyrobów artystycznych majolikowych z Fabryki Xięcia Michała Radziwiłła w Nieborowie (The catalogue of the maiolica works of art manufactured in the factory of Prince Michał Radziwiłł in Nieborów), published in 1885 lists the tiled stoves produced in the factory, including “the one with the owner’s coat of arms accompanied with coats of arms of related families.” The price list suggests that one could order “a black stove or sapphire one with a yellow background” or “the one decorated with various colours.” In the stove from the Nieborów mansion and in the one from Złoty Potok, coming from the mansion in Moskorzew, some tiles are fixed upside down. The “original” version of the stove could be seen only on a black and white photograph in the 11th edition of the monthly magazine, Ziemia (Land) from 1957. It was in the entrance hall of the Krzyszkowice mansion then and
A. Łaszczyński, who was describing it, did not know where it was made; however, he associated it with “a stove-fitter workshop in a small town.” He ended his note about the stove with the sentence that is even more true when compared to recent times: “Unfortunately, like in most palaces and mansions, the precious stoves were devastated and destroyed, thus every such object that still exists becomes an item of special importance.”
