Description

Original French Share Certificate For The "Exposition Universelle". Held In Paris In 1889.

A most interesting share certificate measuring approx. 10.5 inches by 7 inches and in very good condition.
The artwork on the certificate is by Henri-Camille Danger (1857-1937)
(Henri-Camille Danger was born January 31, 1857 in Paris.  He was a known for his paintings of historical, mythological, allegorical, genre, and landscape scenes as well as cartoons for tapestries and pastels).
 The Exposition Universelle of 1889 was a world's fair held in Paris, France, from 6 May to 31 October 1889.
It was held during the year of the 100th anniversary of the storming of the Bastille, an event considered symbolic of the beginning of the French Revolution. The fair included a reconstruction of the Bastille and its surrounding neighborhood, but with the interior courtyard covered with a blue ceiling decorated with fleur-de-lys and used as a ball room and gathering place. The 1889 Exposition covered a total area of 0.96 km2, including the Champ de Mars, the Trocadéro, the quai d'Orsay, a part of the Seine and the Invalides esplanade. Transport around the Exposition was partly provided by a 3 kilometre (1.9 mi) 600 millimetre (2 ft  0  in) gauge railway by Decauville. It was claimed that the railway carried 6,342,446 visitors in just six months of operation. Some of the locomotives used on this line later saw service on the Chemins de Fer du Calvados. The main symbol of the Fair was the Eiffel Tower, which served as the entrance arch to the Fair. Buffalo Bill recruited American sharpshooter Annie Oakley to rejoin his "Wild West Show" which performed for packed audiences throughout the Exposition. Other prominent visitors included the Prince of Wales (the future Edward VII) and his wife, Princess Alexandra; artists James McNeill Whistler, Edvard Munch, Rosa Bonheur, Paul Gauguin and Vincent van Gogh; U.S. journalist and diplomat Whitelaw Reid; author Henry James; Filipino patriot Jose Rizal; and inventors Nikola Tesla and Thomas Edison.

A desirable share certificate of historic interest. It would look fabulous if framed up and displayed. Fully guaranteed to be genuine & authentic.

Mailing cost from France to any location in the world by standard airmail will be 2.00p.
