Glories of Old Poland by pen & brush of Wladyslaw Sztolcman
again I am searching FBC and this time I found this collection Dominika Jeżewskiego Skarbiec Zabytków Polskich znajdujących się w prywatnych zbiorach Warszawy, malował z natury Władysław Sztolcman od r. 1909 -
Warsaw-domiciled draughtsman and painter Władysław Roman Sztolcman (1873-1950) was hired by a well know Varsovian collector or art and antiques Dominik Witke-Jeżewski (1862-1944) to draw and paint the artifacts in private collections in Warsaw etc (then Russian Poland since 1815). You can see the surviving plates in the already mentioned Warsaw National Museum site.
these are some of the palates from the collection - drawn with unrivaled attention to detail and splendid in their beauty
winged hussar's armor,
standard / banner,
hussar kopia (lance) in a form of a hetman's lance,
an eagle allegedly from the Jan III Sobieski's pistol holster,
