BRUXELLES. Action de Priorité de F100. brown, green, black. #4000. No 1850. Several edge-tears, repaired with old-style tape. Also repaired bottom border. Company founded 1880 to exploit panoramas in both Belgium and abroad. In practice, we can deduce 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.
