Many of my ancestors were artists. I have profiled some of them on this blog; Jeanne de Büren, Albert de Büren,Philippe de Büren and Natalie de Büren to name a few. Among some old family books I found the following art supply case. It is a wonderful 19th century treasure that most likely belonged to one of Henri de Büren's children. It was purchased from Papéterie Lagier Frères in Geneva and still contains period charcoal and water colors. I thought it was fantastic and wanted to share.
