Sunday Stamps | Different Shapes

A miscellany of different shapes for today's theme on Sunday Stamps: Shaped.

Maybe it is difficult to perceive this is not a square...

UK, 2013

I have always appreciated the round stamps like these:

African Daisy
USA, 2022

(First Day of Issue Pictorial Postmark)
USA, 2020

Blocking - European Volleyball Championship
Poland 2017

And this is an original shape, isn't it?

National Treasures: Yohen Tenmoku Tea Bowl
Japan, 2021


  1. Japan really likes their shaped stamps, I've found. Those round flower stamps are really nice - and you got a special pictorial as well :)
    There is something amusing about having a nose extending beyond the square stamp.

  2. The Dinosaur set was one of my favourites, can't contain one within a square:). You are right the Japan stamp shape is unique, nice to think some Japanese techniques for firing pottery are too.

  3. Lovely Japanese stamps.


Thank you for coming. All your comments make me extremely happy.
