33 GIRONDE. BORDEAUX. Cert. Nom. d'Inscription, Action de F100. brown, blue, yellow. #60000. No 1795. Folds and pin-holes. Attractive piece, with well-known design of Indian themes - elephants, Hindu gods and ceremonies. The company operated a spinning & weaving mill (probably for cotton) at Pondicherri. This town, on India's south-east coast, was settled in 1673 by the French Compagnie des Indes, and after British occupation, was confirmed as French by treaties. It formed part of the EtablissementsFrançais de l'Inde, the remains of the former French empire in India, which became part of India in 1954. The company was founded in Bordeaux in 1886 to acquire an existing mill at Pondicherri. It was reorganised in 1924 (the oldest shares we know of this company are from that date). The company continue to exist until at least 1956. We have seen various bearer share issued by this firm (1924, 1927, 1951, 1952, 1956), but hardly any nominative shares such as the one we offer here.
