Spink UK presents hundreds of antique securities in upcoming April auction

SPINK's Bonds & Shares Department was created in London in 2008 when specialist Mike Veissid joined Spink. It's upcoming, online sale on 4 April, 2018, features about 400 lots of antique bonds and shares representing all continents. 

Art lovers can find securities designed by artists like L. Blombed, G. Bonnet, A. Mucha and the exceptionally Alfredo Roque Gameiro who illustrated this Adamastor share from 1918.


Companhia de Seguros Luso-Sul Americana, Adamastor
1 share of Esc 200$00, 1918
design by Alfredo Roque Gameiro
lot 241 in the auction, estimated at £200-250

The Companhia de Seguros Luso-Sul Americana, Adamastor, in English: Portuguese-South American Insurance Company, Adamastor, was a marine insurance company founded in 1918. The company operated both in Portugal and Brazil.
The design of the company's share, printed as a litho, was made by the Portuguese artist Alfredo Roque Gameiro (1864-1935). Roque Gameiro, painter and illustrator, specialized in water color painting. He studied fine arts in Lissabon and lithography in Leipzig. 
The company's name and its choice of artist is not coincidental. Adamastor is a Greek mythological character representing the dangers at sea. Adamas (ἀδάμας) is Greek meaning "untameable". Luís de Camões uses the character Adamastor in his epic Os Lusíadas (1572). Adamastor symbolizes the forces of nature Portuguese navigators had to overcome during their discoveries. In 1900 Camões' work is printed again by the Empreza da História da Portugal as the Os Lusíadas, Grande Edição Illustrada. It is co-illustrated by Roque Gameiro. One of his illustrations from that work is displayed below.
