The painted cupboard consists of a base in the form of a low cabinet, equipped with shelves covered with a door and two drawers as well as a shallower cabinet with a glazed door. The interior of the adjustment with a shelf is painted dark blue and the background is also decorated with yellow and red stars. The adjustment is equipped with a back that isolates it from the wall. The “crown” at the top, which is also called a comb, is profiled and ornamented. The bottom of the base functions as the legs of a cupboard. The surface of the cupboard is covered with a single colour primer — green obtained by mixing Parisian blue with bright yellow. The motifs used in the decorations of the cupboard are similar to those found in the Skawina-type chest. On the face side, there are two multi-coloured bouquets of flowers set in vases with two handles. Additionally, on the edges there are flower festoons. Four little bouquets are put on profiled door panels. On the surface of the sides, on the external edges, a flower festoons motif is repeated. In the upper part of the base, a circular wreath of tiny leaves is painted. The uncovered shelves of the cupboard were used to display colourful pottery. As a piece of furniture equipped with shelves, the cupboard was used to store dishes. Cupboards were usually made by a local carpenter upon commission and their possession was indicative of its owner’s wealth. This furniture was used until July 1966 when it was purchased by the museum from Józef Mucha from Rudawa.
