Ferenc Pulszky

1814-1897, collector

Ferenc Aurel Pulszky de Cselfalva et Lubocz was a Hungarian politician, writer and collector, having inherited the collection of his uncle, Gabor Fejervary. Pulszky was elected to the Diet of Hungary (a legislative institution) of 1840. In 1848 Pulszky went into exile in London as a result of his support for the revolution in Hungary that year. In addition to his political career, Pulszky was a collector of antiquities. His collection was exhibited in London in 1853, following which some parts, including objects bought by Joseph Mayer, were auctioned. Pulszky returned to Hungary in 1866.
