Goldsmiths’ work, small decorative art objects, as well as seals and medals were acquired in the greatest numbers. Especially noteworthy are our acquisitions of precious gold and silver objects created in the 16th through 18th centuries in leading Western European (Nuremberg, Augsburg) and Polish (Gdansk, Torun) workshops. Among them are imposing tankards, cups, and salvers, as well as luxurious objects of vertu such as small caskets, cases for utensils, and snuff boxes. The Castle’s porcelain collection gained two very fine pieces made in the Meissen Royal Porcelain Manufactory in the first half of the 18th century – a tea caddy with harbor views and a serving dish with East Asian decorative motifs and many more.
