Exhibit description

In some circumstances, our household devices which we use on a daily basis become part of the family’s fabric.

This was exactly the case with the “Radiation” gas cooker manufactured by a British brand, which served in the family home of Julia and Franciszek Gorgoń for almost one hundred years. The delicious aroma of cake was a sign that the Gorgoń family was expecting guests.

These would include Kornel Makuszyński – a famous poet and a gourmet, who visited the house to play bridge. The recent owner of the house gave the gas cooker the respect it deserves and donated it to the museum as a valuable exhibit.
