Exhibition - Season's Greetings

17: 1997 Seasonal card sent by Rothschild Australia

In the 1830s N M Rothschild adopted the merchant house of Montefiore, Furtado & Co.  in Hobart Town as their Australian correspondent.  The House accepted circular letters of credit on its behalf of Rothschilds' clients travelling in the region. In 1851, gold was discovered in Australia, and in 1852, John Luck, a Rothschild agent, sent the London business a report on the prospects for Australia - and for trade - in the wake of  these new discoveries, In 1868 the London Rothschilds, in collaboration with the New South Wales Bank, raised a £1 million 5% loan on behalf of The New South Wales Government.Rothschild Australia Limited was formed in 1983.

The 1999 card featured a painiting of Mount Zero and Lake Taylor, Victoria by Nicholas Chevalier, 1862; this work is in the collection of Rothschild Australia.
