Stove tiles with the depiction of St. Margaret from Oponice Castle
Languages of publication
Stove tiles with the motifs of Saints with their typical attributes under the Gothic vault appear on the extensive territory of the northern part of the Carpathian Basin. Their production in the last quarter of the 15th century was concentrated in the manufactory in Banská Bystrica, which ceased to exist in the fire of the town in 1500. According to the latest findings, the so-called Banská Bystrica type of stove tiles also appears in the following period. This means that the production of the manufactory either continued after the fire, or the manufactory controlled the stove production of smaller local workshops in the wider range. New findings of the stove tiles with the depiction of St. Margaret were found during the excavations of the Oponice Castle. The aim of the paper is to include them into the series of Banská Bystrica Saints, to evaluate the current state of research and to introduce a new perspective on the issue of stove tile production.
