About

An important antique Polish gilded silver table mirror for Count Ivan Paskevich-Erivanskii, Karol Filip Malcz, Warsaw, 1828-1831. The shaped mirror framed with a gilded silver mount chased with scrolls and shells, surmounted by the new coat-of-arms of the Count of Erivan that Ivan Paskevich had been awarded in 1828, the wood back with shaped strut. Height 29 3/8 in., width 20 1/2 in. (74.6 x 52 cm).  Ivan Paskevich-Erivanskii, who had been a hero of the Napoleonic and Russo-Persian Wars of 1826-1828, was named Viceroy of Poland in 1831. His portrait by George Dawe is included among the heroes of the Napoleonic Wars in the Military Gallery of 1812 in the Winter Palace, Hermitage Museum, St. Petersburg. He was also made Prince of Warsaw on 4 September 1831 and his coat-of-arms was changed to include the Polish eagle. The mirror was made in the very short period in between which Malcz opened his own workshop in 1828 and Paskevich-Erivanskii was elevated to Prince of Warsaw.  Karol Filip Malcz (1797-1867), grandson of the silversmith Jan Johann Bandau, received training in his grandfather's workshop as well as in the workshop of the Warsaw silversmith Jan Maciej Schwartz. Between 1818 and 1827, he traveled throughout Europe, studying silver- and goldsmithing and working in manufactories in Germany, Holland, England, France, Italy, Hungary, and Austria. Objects from his workshop enjoy the very highest reputation today because they are characterized by his close study of the latest trends in European design. He designed objects as well as collaborating with Warsaw artists such as Ludwik Kaufman (1801-1855) and Jan Styfi (1839-1921). Items  from his workshop are marked with his surname Malcz in Latin letters and an anchor in an oval. His works are held in, among others, the collections of: the National Museum in Warsaw; Museum of Warsaw; Museum of Decorative Arts in Kazimierz Dolny. Bibliography: H. Lileyko, Srebra warszawskie w zbiorach Muzeum Historycznego m.. st. Warszawy, Warszawa 1979, pp. 63-64, 76, 94.
