This costume was worn since the mid-19th century by peasants from the lands of Sandomierska Valley, located in the southeastern Poland. It had disappeared after the Second World War and became gradually replaced by Kraków folk costume. Rzeszów male folk dress customarily included: a linen shirt, linen pants – „gacie“ and a blue vest with red lining. On the cold days it was necessary to wear a brown overcoat – „sukmana“, also with the red lining and adorned with a geometric decoration made of a string. The whole costume was completed with a black hat decorated with a velvet ribbon and high leather boots, worn in two styles: Polish and Hungarian. This handmade glass boy brings memories about the traditional costume and the embroidery from the Sandomierska Valley. It belongs to the Bombkarnia author’s collection.
