The Christian Bauwens Fund has acquired a half-set of jewellery created by Arthur Dufour in the 19th century. This magnificent broach and drop earrings in Second Empire style are the second acquisition made by the fund.
Thanks to the Christian Bauwens Fund, a gondola-shaped dish that was formerly part of the service in Tournai porcelain made for the Duke of Orleans, at the end of the 18th century, is now part of the MRAH collections.
A double bass by Benoît Joseph Boussu (1703-1773) has just become part of the heritage of the Museum of Musical Instruments thanks to the Léon Courtin-Marcelle Bouché Fund. It is the only double bass that can be attributed to him at this time.
