Hallo Rich..

Yes, the catalogue informations are made by museum but I know that Kulczycki made a lot of notes, kept receipts and so on. Not all of it survived to present day but I'm sure that person who was working on the catalogue was using oryginal documents too - I've seen some on the exhibition.
What I've seen was mostly about design and composition, lists of items, prices, places and dates of purchase with some information about items origins when possible.
eg. "I sold a XVII c. ladik prayer rug to Mr. XXX for the price of xxx. The rug was from my own collection, purchased from Mr. YYY and he was saying that the rug was previously bought from a Jagiellonian University Profesor who got it from a little church in the village of xxxx or a benedictine convent in xxxxxx.."

regards

marek
