AMSTERDAM. Onder-Aandeel Fl.250. blue, black. No 967. Early and attractive share with pretty vignette of a clipper. The company was established in 1873 with the aim to establish a connection between Amsterdam and the Dutch East Indies. The founders, T.C. Scholl and J. Heybroek had received strong support from English shipowners and shipbrokers. At first, they purchased a second hand ship and within the year added fournew cargo passenger ships to the fleet, all built in Great Britain. As such, they became the largest Dutch shipping company to trade to the Dutch East Indies. The company flourished well. However, in 1875 the driving force, T.C. Scholl, died and the company went downhill after that. Competition of the Stoomvaart Maatschappij Insulinde and the Stoomvaart Maatschappij Nederland became toostrong. The company was liquidated in 1887.
