Museum François Duesberg in Mons, Belgium

Museum François Duesberg was opened on September 21, 1994 and is devoted to decorative arts from the period 1775 to 1825. The museum is located in Mons, Belgium. It houses a large collection of objects in perfect condition: it has a prestigious collection of clocks and mantel clocks, exceptional gilded French bronzes, porcelain (mainly from Paris and Brussels), pottery, jewelry (including the famous Mons-punch), and numerous items of similar quality.

It was founded by François Duesberg and his wife Betty whose collections focus on the periods of Louis XVI, that of Charles X of France and of the First French Empire under Napoleon.

Its collections receive two Michelin stars (the highest level is three Michelin stars). The Lonely Planet guide now places the museum, in the richness of its specificities, to a level quite comparable to the Louvre in Paris and the Hermitage in St. Petersburg.
