MetadataShow full item record
Participation of landowners in the wood industry od the Polish Kingdom in the years 1870– 1914 was limited mainly to the sawmilling industry. Landowners’ companies were 80% of establishments and over 60% of production’s value. The reason for such a large share was possession by the landowners, resource base, which accounted for forests. Another important reason was the spatial decentralizing of the industry. Landowners played a huge role in the production of furniture, creating in 1872 large bent furniture factory in Wojciechów, which, after 1904, employed a total of more than 1,500 people. In other sectors of the Polish Kingdom’s timber industry, gentry did not play a greater role.
