A large commemorative glass made of pink transparent glass. A large spout covered with a silver plate under which a bust of a man in a military uniform was placed. Below there is an engraved inscription: “Count Adolf Starzeński Polish Army 1831”. The back of the glass features the names of four insurgent battles: “Grochów”, “Iganie,” “Ostrołęka,” “Bolimów”. Below, the “Fox” coat of arms, which was featured on the seal of the Starzeńskis, along with the coat of arms of the Kingdom of Poland from 1831, a crowned bipartite shield, with only an eagle but without the Pursuit (i.e. Lithuania’s coat of arms).
Most probably, the glass shows the bust of Adolf Starzeński, commemorating his participation in the Polish national uprising against Russia at the turn of 1830 and 1831.
The glass was once a family souvenir of Count Adam Edward Starzeński (1872-1956), who managed a palace in Kościelec in the interwar period, now non-existent  and lying within a district of the town of Chrzanów. Count Adam collected engravings and lithographs related to the history of Poland, however, in January 1943 the palace burnt down along with a valuable collection of engravings and lithographs. After the fire of the palace, it could not be rebuilt. A considerable number of memorabilia from the Starzeński family was acquired by private collectors. The glass shared this fate and was handed over to the Museum of the Vistula Ethnographic Park in Wygiełzów and Lipowiec Castle as a donation in 2007.
