The firm evidently ran a sugar factory in Villers-St.-Amand from the mid 1850s to the late 1860s. It then presumably was superseded by new and successful factories in nearby Ath and Brugulete established in 1871 and 1870 respectively. I have not found traces for this company other than the shares.

Plain design looking distinctly “home-made”. Belgian tax stamps. On the reverse stamps for dividends from 1855 - 1869.

1854 pencilled in - presumably the date of incorporation for a sugar company that will have existed before. Signed by a Prudhomme as board member.
