Obesłanie of the guild of carpenters in Koszyce depicts an eagle on one side, and the Eye of Providence as well as carpentry tools on the other: a protractor, compass, plane and the inscription: “.Year. 1546 .” It was made in the 19th century, so the date placed thereon probably does not refer to the year of the exhibit’s creation, but rather to some important event in the history of the guild. Koszyce used to be a large craft centre. In 1579 there were 86 craft workshops there.
What was obesłanie? It is a characteristic element obligatory in the organization of the life of individual guilds. It constituted a sign authenticating the conveyed message. If a messenger carried an obesłanie when summoning, for example, guild members to a meeting, it was a confirmation that the message came from the guild master. Without this sign, the information was considered unreliable.
