    Wellicht de mooiste verzameling kunstvoorwerpen ivm de Franse en Belgische 18de eeuw en de Napoleontische periode : er is een schat aan allerlei voorwerpen te zien : klokken , porcelein , pijpen , beelden , brons enz... De kwaliteit van wat tentoongesteld wordt is altijd superieur en zeer smaakvol. Ik werd er zeer vriendelijk ontvangen door de Heer Duesberg zelf en werd discreet begeleid door een professor Kunstgeschiedenis die zeer beslagen was op dit vakgebied van de Franse 18de eeuw. Dit was voor mij genieten van elk moment !
