The Count’s salon

“The Count’s Salon” is the name of a permanent historical exhibition. At Donnersmarcks time this small room with decorative plafond served as the living room of Countess Teresa, sister of Count Lazarus V, the last actual owner of the palace. Unfortunately, the historical turmoil meant that little was left of the palace equipment, except the vault, the fireplace and the chandelier in the vestibule. One can only reproduce the atmosphere of the era by exposing 19th and 20th century furniture. The original palace furniture is a wooden chair with a black seat, perhaps a marble inkwell also comes from here. Portraits of a man and a woman from the turn of the 19th and 20th century are not associated with the family Henckel von Donnersmarck and were used by the priest of the parish in Nakło Śląskie. Portraits of women come from the family archive of Barbara Bereska.

At present, in the Count’s Salon, there is also a piano and furniture (red armchairs, a sofa and a table) from Wojciech Weiss’ manor in Kalwaria Zebrzydowska (it is a deposit).
