Oranges On Stamps

I could have add these stamps to my previous post of Sunday Stamps-II, dedicated to fruits and nuts. But I reserved them for the Orange and Yellow theme... (Orange is one of my favourite colours, by the way.)



This is one of the four stamps issued by Royal Mail on 2 March 1977, dedicated to British Nobel Prize Winners in Chemistry.



One more of the the Fun Fruit 'n' Veg Smilers sheet, issued by Royal Mail on 7 March 2006.


And these are not oranges as I thought, but its cousins, the kumquats. This is a commemorative stamp celebrating the Chinese New Year, issued on 22 January 2011, and designed by Ethel Kessler of Bethesda, Maryland. Kumquats are eaten for luck and given as special gifts during the New Year celebrations. More information here.

    1. It seems that the orange is jumping from the stamp!

  2. I like your combination of a vitamin c stamp and the actual orange itself. Just makes me feel I should peel one:)

    2. So do I, love the first stamp you're showing!

    3. I love them in general, and the second orange, that seems to get out from the stamp, is great. But no doubt that the first stamp is a great great design.

  4. I've never seen the USA stamp before but the GB stamps are very familiar even although I never made the orange connection = last week or this.

  5. Hi Eva! Orange is one of my favorite colors too :D If you notice, my blog's predominant color is orange. And I love eating the orange fruit. Well ... okay, perhaps not the "orange" itself but one of its cousins. It's really not easy for me to identify one and each with the correct name.
