Two wonderful pieces of jewelry created by renown 19th-century Belgian gold- and silversmiths are enriching our public collections. The Christian Bauwens Fund has acquired a brooch by Oscar Massin and a bracelet by Charles Buls. As of today you can admire them in all their glory at DIVA in Antwerp.
For the fifth year running, the Platform for Education and Talent, created by Sofina and the heirs of Gustave Boël, is supporting talented young people who will represent Belgium in the international Worldskills competition taking place in Kazan (Russia) from 22 to 27 August 2019.
