Varia

The collection was created non-systematically through occasional collections, primarily gifts starting at the founding of the Town Museum in Přerov in the year 1902. 

The basis was formed from items of an ethnographic character obtained from collecting during preparation of the Ethnographic Exhibition in Prague in the year 1895, as well as from a regional exhibition in Přerov in the year 1893. Major increases came about in the 1930s in connection with the announcement of the Central Moravian exhibition in Přerov.

The collection is primarily made up of collectible items from the period of the 19th - 20th centuries. The 18th century is represented to a smaller extent with occasional collectible items from even earlier. The collection consists of items originating from the territorial collecting area of the Museum – the Přerov region. Moravia and occasionally Bohemia are also represented to a limited extent. 

Items in the collection

The Varia collection consists of various, modest-sized collectible units: candlesticks, liturgical items, musical instruments, smoking items and particularities which do not fit into other collectible groups or which were not complete in some fashion in terms of documenting in the Přerov region.

Amongst the most significant items in the collection are an Art Nouveau chandelier from the 18th century from the original furnishings of the Přerov Château, a harmonium from the legacy of the Přerov musical composer Josef Čapka Drahlovský and mementos from a citizen of Přerov who was imprisoned in concentration camps during World War II, the Přerov artist Miloš Sum.

3,863 recorded numbers of collectible items are listed in the collection.

The collection is administered by Mgr. Petr Sehnálek (Social Sciences Department).
