The tiled stove was moved to the Museum of the Vistula Ethnographic Park in Wygiełzów and the Lipowiec Castle as an element of the former furnishings of the manor house in Droginia. During the reconstruction it was located in the room constituting the museum exhibition where it performs a decorative function in the master’s room, although it used to be a source of heat in the Droginia manor where the Bzowski family lived for generations. This type of stove, built in Polish manors and palaces to modernize interiors, could maintain heat for up to 12 hours, providing warmth for the residents.
The exact time of creation and origin of the painted tiled stove is unknown. The simple, single-story construction using only four types of tiles (middle, corner and both straight and corner top ones) allows us to date the time of the stove’s manufacture to the interwar period. In 1918–1939, the Cracovian centre of ceramic products expanded rapidly, mass-producing and distributing tiles in nearby towns. It is estimated that new stoves with coloured ceramic tiles in the decorative stylistics of folk products appeared at the Droginia manor at that time. On the tiles with a rusty colour one can see some asymmetrical wavy lines, stems with flowers and funny animal motifs (little deer, turkeys), all painted by hand in shades of green, white, blue and black.
Glazed ceramic tiles along with decorated iron doors arrest the attention of visitors, because the colour scheme of the stove matches the colours of the walls, as the custom of the former manor owners dictated.
