Brussels, BelgiumLive Auction
Description: 17 June 1910 PARIS. Action de F100. pink, green. #5000. No 2046. Large format Jugendstil/Art Nouveau piece. Popular perhaps because of the lovely girl, topless, with flowers in her hair. The object of the company was to make agreements with a small number of shopkeepers in each trade in each town, for the company toissue cheques to the shopkeeper to pass on to his customers, relative to what they spent in the shop. The shopkeeper paid the company a fee, depending on his sales. The aim was to encourage the shop's customers to continue to trade at that shop. A great classic piece of scripophily.
