Skowronek - Skowronek (1909-1930) Was an Arabian horse of legendary fame raised by Count Józef Potocki, descendant of one of the Polish royal dynasties, and later acquired by artist Water Winans, who used it as a model for various statues, and ultimately by Judith Blunt-Lytton, 16th Baroness Wentworth. Skowronek's descendants are still highly prized today. The horse's skeleton was donated by Lady Wentworth to the British Museum. The term “skowronek” refers in Polish to a kind of skylark; however, it is worth commenting that the Potocki palace in Warsaw lies across the Park Saski, almost directly in front of where a bureau of the Skowronek Bank and Currency Exchange company stood at the time, which belonged to the Skowronek family.
