Description: 1 October 1781 ANVERS. Action de 1000 Florins. black. No 259. In 1775 Guillaume Bolts obtained permission from Empress Maria Theresa to establish a company in the Austrian free port of Trieste, for trading with the East Indies. In 1781 the first shares were issued, with great success. The director was the famousAntwerp businessman Charles de Proli, son of the founder of the Keyserlijke Indische Compagnie, of Ostend; he was also linked with the formation of the Assurance d'Anvers. The company could not compete with the French and English competition, and afteran unfortunate expedition to China, the company was unable to meet its liabilities. The Trieste Company is the last of the great trading companies of the Habsburgs. The share is printed on hand-made paper, and is signed by Count Charles de Proli and byGuillaume Bolts.
