    Hello Everyone.
    This is part of my Banking memorabilia, it's being in my collection from the very beginning, receive from my father in the 80s, that him receive from John Theodore Ross in the 60s, General Manager from The Royal Bank Of Canada, but this Letter holder belong to the last manager from "The Quebec Bank", this is a key feature from my Quebec Bank collection.
    Measure 6.50 inches high by 6.50 inches long.

    QUEBEC BANK
    Quebec Bank was founded on June 9, 1818 to meet a perceived need by some merchants and residents Quebec City. They wanted an alternative to the newly founded Bank of Montreal which they felt was inadequate for the needs of the province.

    The bank was incorporated in 1822 in Quebec City and made good progress until the great revulsion of 1826-7. The first president was John William Woolsey. Robert Henry Bethune was part of the banks organization from 1864 -1870 during a time when Quebec Bank was changing the way Canadian banks lent money. The bank was predominantly in Quebec and to a lesser extent in Ontario with a few branches in western Canada when it was absorbed by the Royal Bank of Canada in 1917. The integration of the Quebec Bank into the Royal Bank was made effective January 1, 1918, adding 20 million dollars to the assets of the Royal Bank.

    A small reminder of the banks existence is the Quebec Bank Building in Montreal with its name carved over the entrance. On July 27, 2018, The Quebec Bank branch in Toronto, located at 50 King Street East, was designated under Part IV of the Ontario Heritage Act as being of cultural heritage value or interest.

      Very cool post. (I use a wooden butterfly napkin holder for my mail holder) haha So can you tell me a little more about Jugenstill? I have a pair of wrought iron candlestick holders and have been told that's what they are. At one point, I did see some lettering on one but just can't find it again!
