The building acquired its present appearance in the second half of the 19th century, by the order of its owner, György Vasváry, ironmonger. A shop was made in the forefront, and an exquisite middle-class home was formed upstairs.
The solid façade of the historistic, partly neo-renaissance, early eclectic building was richly decorated with Zsolnay's ceramics in 1883-1884. The epigraph “Vasváry-Ház” made of Zsolnay's ceramics was placed on the balustered overliers of the façade then, and above it the family's blazon with two allegoric woman figures. There are rosettes and plant motifs below the lintel course, in the upper panels of the windows, while lion heads can be seen under the windows. The voluminous, embossed panel pictures between the two side windows were also made of Zsolnay's ceramics, which can be seen in their original place even today. They were designed by Tádé Sikorski, the creative manager of the factory. The panel picture on the left is entitled “Art and Industry”, the right picture is “Trade and Traffic”, and they depict the motifs of the conceptions and actual devices of these.
The interior walls and ceilings were decorated with allegoric, figural and plat motifs, the damaged or unremembered parts of which were brought to the surface and secured by restoration and research in 1992. The former home was refashioned as an exhibition with the original furniture, paintings and pieces of art, and some of its spaces give home to the permanent exhibition dedicated to the ouvre of Ferenc Lantos.
