Share of 1000 Florins, paid in four tranches at 250 Florins of Vienna, from "Compagnie Imperiale & Royale Octroyee d'Assurance de Commerce & d'escompte." dated in manuscript, Trieste, May 1, 1783. Share made out to Michel de Knyff of Antwerp.

In their high-flying plans, the proud Habsburg monarchy very often relied on the money of the wealthy Antwerp bankers and wholesalers, who at that time belonged to the Austrian Netherlands. Among the financiers was the famous bank of Ertborn & Fils among many Antwerp bankers, noble and rich families.
This Share made out to Michel de Knyff (1720-1797), who was a member of a noble Belgium family. Michel de Knyff was the son of Jacques Knyff (1681-1756) who in 1719, was granted by the Emperor Charles VI, along the irregular channel of the Imperial Chancellery, the Knight's title of the Holy Roman Empire. In 1734 the noble favour was confirmed to Jacques Knyffe, this time through the regular channel of the chancellery in the Austrian Netherlands. In 1756 Empress Maria Theresia gave the personal title knight to two sons of Jacques Knyff: one was Michel who was the owner of this share. ¤
