Count Adam Zamoyski’s study

This is the first-to-go-to unit in the southern luxury apartment. The room’s pride is a white-and-gold stove featuring the Jelita coat-of-arms, made on special order and modelled after rococo stoves; the fireplace is, in turn, a replica of the 1781 one to be met in the Versailles palace. Opposite the entrance door, you can see two portraits of Zofia Zamoyska, the one to the right having probably been made at the François Gérard atelier in the early 19th century. Next to the mirror is a portrait of Konstancja and Stanisław Poniatowski, the parents of King Stanislaus Augustus Poniatowski whose effigy is visible above the door leading to the White Salon (both portraits after M. Bacciarelli). The excelling pieces of furniture include: a 19th-century Louis-XV-style French cabinet; a Kolbuszowa-made press with an adjustment in the form of an escritoire; a davenport with the date ‘1716’ inlaid on it. A Martenot-of-Paris clock, reminiscent of the Boulle products, stands on the fireplace sill, as does a pair of French Empire-style chandeliers. On the cabinet by the door stands a bust of Rachel, the French actress who was famous in 19th century. In the room’s corner is a cup offered to Count Adam to commemorate his stay in Detroit in 1928.
