Brussels, BelgiumLive Auction
Description: Various dates While health resorts/Kurorte/centres thermales probably exist in every country, France must have the most. It certainly has the most scripophily, and many of the best known names. This collection includes about 75% of all French health resort certificates (including water companies which in practice often go hand-in-hand) we know to exist. Impressive. We list some companies: Co. Fermière des Eaux-Bonnes et Eaux-Chaudes, Co. Thermale des Eaux de Vals-Délicieuses, Eaux Minerales de Pardina, Eaux Minérales & Grands Hôtels de Luxeuil, Eaux Minérales et Ets. Thermaux de Martigny-les-Bains, Eaux Minérales Naturelles de Vichy, Nancy-Thermal, Source André à Saint-Galmier, Source Perrier, Thermale des Abatilles,... If there are bigger collections of this theme anywhere out there, we would like to know about it. As far now, this is the biggest collection we have ever encountered.
