ALEXANDRIA. Titre de 10 Actions de £Stg 4. green. No 9190. Folds. Formed Alexandria, 1908. We find little info about this Egyptian construction company, but its share cert. is most appealing. It shows a desirable naked woman sitting casually on a set of architect's plans. A beautiful art nouveau/Jugendstil design, with flowers, trees, ribbons and much else. However, the use of the words "Labor" and "Industria" together with the chimney stacks in the foreground show that the company works hard for its shareholders. We assume the design was chosen to enhance the saleability of the shares - not unusual on shares of the period. Not to be confused with the later (1912) shares issued by this company - they have a similar, be it simplified design, are of a smaller format and less rare than the piece we offer here. Rarity 11.
