Shares Nom. of £1. black. No 7. Central fold with small edge-split (repaired) and a few pin-holes. J. Rothschild & Fils traded from 131 Avenue Malakoff, Paris, but had been founded by Austrian-born Josef Rothschild in 1838 in Levallois-Perret, and was building automobile coachwork by 1894. By 1896 the business had been purchased by Edmond Rheims and Leon Auscher and pioneered aluminum composite coachwork. It appears that the business was incorporated (but not quoted) in London soon after 1900. In the early 1900s there was a firm of Clément-Rothschild, also building car coachwork, and also in Levallois-Perret, but close to, or in, the Clément-Perret factory, so perhaps a joint operation, with Rothschild building the bodies for Clément.
