Grain Sack

I was given this as a gift when I was a teenager by a Claire de Büren of Bern. It is a de Büren grain sack from 1813. I have always liked it and appreciate the design a great deal. The CLvB most likely stands for Charles Louis de Büren (1767-1851), son of David de Büren, Governor of Sumiswald (1734-1782).
