[ noun ] (business) a corporation that is entirely owned by the members of a single family
Used in print(Norman Kent, "The Watercolor Art of Roy M. Mason"...)
Like many others , he had to work hard , long hours in a struggling family_business which , though it was allied to art of a kind - the design and production of engraved seals - bore no relation to the painting of pictures .
After more years of concentrated effort , Roy and his brother Max finally established a thriving family_business at the old stand .
During all this time Roy continued to paint , first only on weekends , and_then , as the family_business permitted , for longer periods .
