Grand chamber

Muzeum Historii Miasta PrzemyślaPlace: Brzykowska House, 9, Rynek (Town Hall Square), ground floor, inner court side

Grand chambers were the most representative rooms in Renaissance houses, and were used to host guests or discuss business matters; the equipment of the chamber was first of all of functional character. It consisted of tables, benches and stools. Utensils were being stocked in built-in cupboards, named armoires. In our chamber there partially survived 16th century-polychrome with motifs of mascaron-decorated garlands. Also, fragments of tiles found in north-west corner of the room made early Baroque stove be reconstructed.

Good taste and richness of the owners of the Brzykowska House are proved also by high class larch-made multi beam floor, discovered in the course of refurbishment works, and planned to be restituted.
