HARVESTER PD98/ GLEANER B275. FULL SHEET OF STAMPS IN WINDOW ENVELOPE. 1996.

£45.00

Edinburgh: City of Edinburgh Museums and Galleries, 1996
Two sheets of cinderella stamps – each 14,5 x 13cm, consisting of 12 stamps with designs by Finlay and Gary Hincks issued separately from the book (stamp album) “The Illustrated Stamp Album for Postage Stamps of the World: Imagined Lands; Vol. XIV Scotland.” > The book was issued in 500 copies but some of the stamps were available separately. The brown 35p stamp -HARVESTER- shows a wooden old fashioned fish box (where fish are sold at market from) and the blue 1 euro – GLEAMER – shows a more modern plastic version of the same box. The move from the traditional to the new reflects the change in marItime law once the UK entered the European Union.
Finlay did cards and also an unique work based on these boat names and registration numbers. PD is Peterhead and B is Belfast.

PRICE IS FOR BOTH SHEETS OF STAMPS IN ORIGINAL WINDOW ENVELOPE WITH RUBBER STAMP IMPRESSION ON REVERSE.
