The Netherland Line promoted business

The Netherlands Steamship Company, also known as the Nederland Line, was one of many companies showing off its kind of activities in the design of its shares .
The company was founded in 1870 to operate a passenger, freight and mail  service between Holland and the Dutch East Indies (Indonesia) via the Suez Canal (Egypt).

The left border of this specimen certificate, issued 1908 in Amsterdam , depicts the pyramids of Egypt. After a several weeks on a ship, passengers arrived in the Dutch East Indies and must have been charmed by the cabins under the palm trees on the coasts (shown in the right border vignette).
