13 BOUCHES-DU-RHONE. MARSEILLE. Action de F1000. black, buff, green. No 318. Several tears, repaired. Formed Marseille, 1847. A very unusual insurance share, which, we understand, gave cover against the breaking of church bells, and thus named for the Angelus bells. The name could suggest cover against breaking of various types of object called a 'cloche'. The most likely possibility for insurance would be the agricultural cloche, of glass to protect young plants. The lady's cloche hat is less likely! Decorative border of flowers. Extremely rare.
