Chairs on Stamps

Not an easy theme for today's Sunday Stamps: Furniture. 

Since I read some Heleen's posts (this and this) I wanted to publish the Hungarian chairs I have received myself, though maybe they are not new to most of you. This theme makes me curious.





I have also received another chair from the USA:



And two more chairs from Canada. This stamp was released on July 2014, and shows a work of photographer Lynne Cohen. (More information about these stamp)



The main subject in the last one (from the Netherlands) is not furniture but Little Red Riding Hood. But I decided that the beautiful chair and bed deserve a place in this post!

  1. Wow, a great selection of furniture. The Canadian stamp is my favourite, I'm presuming the black lines are a 'scribbled' cancel, I wish the post office (in which ever country) would cancel properly either machine or handstamp rather than these messy lines through stamps.

    1. Thanks.
      Yes, on the Canadian stamp there is a strange cancellation (with a black pencil). However, it matches with the Halloween theme envelope... Anyway I'm inclined to think that odd cancellations make part of every stamp story...

    2. At first sight I thought the black lines were part of the photographic art work :-) A kind of liane or so, in a modern art style photo.
      Just by reading both your words I realized that the lines go forward on top, through the stamp edge :-)
      Nice picture anyway, and I agree with you, Eva, that odd cancellations are part of the stamp's journey and (his)tory.
      And I agree with Lisa, too: I prefer rubberstamp cancellations. Although the scribbled one has been created by a real person, while many rubberstamp cancellations are added by a stamping machine most of the times, I think...

    3. To be honest, I hadn't realised the blank lines until I read the comment. And I had to look for the envelope (I received it for Halloween) to check if the belonged to the stamp! :)

  2. I now live in Hungary, and I really really don't like those stamps with chairs! Unfortunately the ladies at the post office try to sell me those very often! But the one from the Netherlands here is great! :)

    1. I don't dislike them, but I guess I would be soon tired of sending the same stamps. I'm living in Morocco right now, and they always sell me the same stamp: the basic series with the king. But it isn't their fault, as sometimes it is the only stamp they have in the post office!

  3. I'm glad you found so many. I was beginning to despair. Good for Hungary.

    1. Maybe I also cheated: I have a penfriend in Hungary who sent me these stamps!

  4. I've had a few of the Hungarian stamps but they always seem to be the same ones so I've not seen the blue one before.The Canadian office chairs look a safer option than finding a wolf in bed:-)

  5. Very tough stamp topic. If you do an internet search for Eames Stamps you will see the fantastic stamps from the US issued in 2008. Most of them show furniture, and they are really beautiful stamps.

  7. I's a great collection! The American chair stamp is beautiful, too!
    I hadn't noticed that the dutch fairy-tale stamp showed furniture, too, until I saw this blog post, thank you for posting!

    1. I like Sunday Stamps because it forces us to look at the stamps more carefully...

    1. Ni a mi! M'agradaria ser dissenyadora de segells, o "triadora" de temes (així, almenys, no n'hi hauria dos de cada tres de temàtica ràncireligiosa, com a Correos...)

  9. You've found so many! Yes, I've seen the Hungarian stamps before but I still like them. The other two are new to me.
