Société des Fabriques de Soieries „C. Giraud Fils

Lot 727: Société des Fabriques de Soieries „C. Giraud Fils"

by HWPH Historisches Wertpapierhaus AG

April 26, 2014, 11:00 AM CET

Wuerzburg, Germany

Estimated Price: €40 - €60

Description: Moskau, 1912, Aktie über 200 Rubel, #38599, 32,5 x 26 cm, braun, türkis, schwarz, KR, zweisprachig: Russisch, Französisch.Die Franzosen Giraud waren Moskaus größte Seidenweber. Claude Marie (Ossipowitsch) Giraud gründete seine Manufaktur 1875 unterhalb der schönen bunten Nikolai Kirche im Moskauer Weberviertel Chamowniki. Was auch immer man aus Seide und anderen edlen Garnen weben konnte, wurde bei Giraud produziert. Der Dichter Leo Tolstoj, der 1882 in Moskau sein hölzernes Stadthaus gegenüber der Fabrik bezog, hatte sich nicht unbedingt die beste Wohnlage ausgesucht: Tag für Tag vernahm er das Rattern von damals schon mehr als 2.000 Webstühlen. Er konnte den täglichen Zug der Arbeiter zu ihrer Arbeit beobachten und wurde dadurch inspiriert, in seinen Werken über das trostlose Schicksal der russischen Arbeiterschaft zu schreiben. Giraud behandelte seine Arbeiter ganz und gar nicht sozial; abgerechnet wurde jährlich nur einmal, die Arbeitsverträge schloss er auch nur für ein Jahr und gab danach nur den besten (und gesunden) Arbeitern für ein weiteres Jahr Arbeit und Brot. Durch einen dummen Fauxpas musste er seine Fabrik schon vor seinem Tod (1904) an seine Söhne Victor, Paul und André vererben: Er hatte die Seidentücher seines Moskauer Konkurrenten Saposchnikow kopiert und sich erdreistet, sie mit dessen Etiketten zu versehen. Die Sache flog auf, und Claude Giraud musste dafür sogar vorübergehend außer Landes gehen. Nach der Oktoberrevolution wurden die Girauds enteignet. Die Sowjets nannten seine Manufaktur Rote Rosa (nach Rosa Luxemburg). Im Zweiten Weltkrieg zeichnete sich die Rote Rosa dadurch aus, dass sie die Fallschirme für die sowjetische Armee produzierte. Auch heute noch rattern die Webstühle in der Gasse gegenüber dem früheren Wohnhaus von Tolstoj. Das Haus ist heute ein Museum. Girauds Söhne wandelten die zuvor als Personengesellschaft geführte Seidenweberei 1911 in eine Aktiengesellschaft um. Aus dieser ersten Gründungsemission stammt die vorliegende Aktie. Die drei Söhne haben auch die angebotene Aktie in obiger Reihenfolge unterschrieben. Die Aktien waren nie börsennotiert, sondern überwiegend im Familienbesitz.Countries:RusslandRegion:Europa

Zorneding, Germany

Estimated Price: €40 - €60

Description: Seraing, 1 April 1937, 4 % Bond for 1,000 Gulden N.-C., #8238, 38.5 x 27.7 cm, blue, green-grey, black, folds, tears repaired with old tape, 4 pages, some coupons remaining, hole cancellation, bilingual: Dutch, French.Seraing, 01.04.1937, 4 % Obligation über 1.000 Gulden N.-C., #8238, 38,5 x 27,7 cm, blau, grün-grau, schwarz, Knickfalten, Randeinriss alt geklebt, DB, KR, lochentwertet, zweisprachig: Niederländisch, Französisch.John Cockerill was born on August 3, 1790, in Haslington, Lancashire. Already in his early years he travelled all over Europe with his family and in 1797, he landed in Verviers. Cockerills father built spinning machines there. From 1802 on, John also worked in his fathers company and in 1807 he became an entrepreneur himself together with his brother James. John equipped a factory that James founded in Seraing. Besides blast furnaces there were a machine manufacturer, two mineral coal mines, one ore mine and a boiler maker. The entire complex employed a total of 2,500 workers. The company was one of the first manufacturers of steam engines on the European continent. James sold his shares in the company to the King of the Netherlands in 1825. In 1833 John assumed those shares and from this time on was sole owner of the company. Only six years later the company was shaken by a financial crisis from which it was rescued by John’s brother-in-law, Konrad Gustav Pasteur. In 1840 John passed away during travel in Warszaw. The company went into liquidation. Pastor sold everything except for the factories in Seraing and Liege. Thus he was able to save the core of the enterprise, out of which the above-named company was built a short while thereafter. During the following decades the company developed into a big mining and diversified corporation. After WW II, Cockerill went into several fusions: first with Qugree-Marihaye and Ferblatil (1955), then with La Providence (1966), a little later with N.V. Métallurgie d'Espérance-Langdoz (1970), and finally with La Sambre into the current Cockerill-Sambre.John Cockerill wurde am 03.08.1790 in Haslington in Lancashire geboren. Schon in jungen Jahren kam er mit seiner Familie quer durch Europa und landete 1797 in Verviers. Cockerills Vater baute dort Spinnmaschinen. Ab 1802 arbeitet auch John in der väterlichen Firma mit. 1807 macht er sich zusammen mit seinem Bruder James selbständig. James gründete in Seraing eine Fabrik, die von John eingerichtet wurde. Dort befanden sich neben Hochöfen, einem Stahl- und Walzwerk auch eine Maschinenfabrik, zwei Steinkohlegruben, eine Erzgrube und eine Kesselschmiede. Insgesamt standen 2.500 Personen in Lohn und Brot. Das Unternehmen war einer der ersten Hersteller von Dampflokomotiven auf dem europäischen Kontinent. James veräußerte seine Anteile an der Firma 1825 an den König von Holland. 1833 übernahm John Cockerill dann die Anteile und war fortan alleiniger Besitzer der Firma. Nur sechs Jahre später wurde die Firma während einer schweren Finanzkrise erschüttert, aus der sie Cockerills Schwager, Konrad Gustav Pasteur herausführte. 1840 verstarb Cockerill während einer Reise in Warschau. Das Unternehmen ging in Liquidation. Pastor veräußerte alles bis auf die Werke in Seraing und Lüttich. Hierdurch gelang es ihm den Kern des Unternehmens zu retten. Aus diesem wurde kurze Zeit später die obige Gesellschaft formiert. In den folgenden Jahrzehnten entwickelte sich die Gesellschaft zu einem großen Bergbau- und Mischkonzern. Nach dem Zweiten Weltkrieg fusionierte Cockerill gleich mehrfach. Zunächst mit Qugree-Marihaye und Ferblatil (1955), dann mit La Providence (1966), später mit N. V. Metallurgique d'Esperance-Langdoz (1970) und schließlich mit La Sambre zur heutigen Cockerill-Sambre.Countries:BelgienRegion:Europa
