The History of the Guilds of Tata

In the flourishing market town there were a number of guilds, the most renowned among them the staplers, weaving the baize but the potters’ and millers’ guilds were well known as well.

The exhibition displays a collection of artefacts from the guilds’ life: guild chests, guild pitchers etc. The boot maker guild collection is presented in organic surroundings with all the accessories of a celebration: the open chest, the seal, the jug and cups of the guild but the freshly initiated apprentice’s masterpiece, a pair of little boots are also on the table. Beside the set-up the freshly restored church flags of the boot maker and the furriers’ guild are on display.
