BRUXELLES. Action de Priorité de F100. brown, green, black. # 4000. No 1847. Several edge-tears, repaired with old-style tape. Also restored bottom border. Small bits of paper loss at the top (outside the printed part of the share). Company founded 1880 to exploit panoramas in both Belgium and abroad. In practice, we can deduct from the share that the company wished to show the panoramas of Solferino (Italy), Sebastopol (Crimea) and Malakoff (Crimea). Both showed battles won by the French Emperor Napoleon III in the 1850s. The painter, which name is also shown on the share was the former French colonel Jean-Charles Langlois. Very pretty share, showing a battle field and two soldiers, as well as various coat-of-arms. Not only one of the prettiest, but also one of the rarest of all panorama shares ; we know of only 2 pieces and were never before able to offer one in our auctions.
