I think there are many of such stamps, so lets see them here.
Hello all, will this one count as horse and carriage? or horse and carriage on railway carriages.
Date of issue: 1980-03-12
I love the "britishness" of the stamp!
Boy... REALLY pushing the envelope here!!!
The little extra (on railway) pushes you over the edge though...
Britishness... what a concept!
My sister-in-law is a Brit and it is very interesting how her mind works. She is a beautiful person and they have been married over 25 years but she still surprises me...
Never tried her on stamps though... may increase the bond??
Hello all, This one caught my eye, do sleighs count as carriages?
It does count.
It is about russian folk festivity called Maslenica.
Snow plough horse sleigh were used in depression areas as a means of transport during winter time, both in Russia and here in Serbia(also in Slavonija, Poland, Hungary and Czechoslovakia and Romania)
Knowing that stamps are generally printed with 4-color inks and blends thereof, I am still fascinated that they can color all the stamps with very little bleedover... anyone taking good looks at stamps from the 40's and even later can see where the offsets are just a LITTLE off at times...
Nice stamp James.
My grandfather had sleighs in Michigan in the 20's and 30's as well...
Sleighs were a means of transport...
I hve fond memories of riding them in high snow back in '70s
Hello all, these from R P Kampuchea [Cambodia] Horses with a Cinderella/smiler carriage attached.
Date of issue: 1989-10-09.
Hello all, this stamp depicts a painting called 'Combatants' horses and cart or wagon.
The combatants appear to be playing musical instruments.
Korea (North). Date of issue: 1974-08-15
Just started looking at North Korea as a collectible... not too many come in the international collections I go through. Nice art...
Hello SATX, I have a small collection of DPRK, about 200 stamps, I'm separating out wanted themes, whatever is left will either go to my new collectors or will be traded.
We see few North Korean stamps because their importation into the U.S. is prohibited.
A horse-drawn sleigh was depicted on one of the 1974 U.S. Christmas stamps. I used to see this stamp used on dealers envelopes. I suspect it was available in large quantities as discount postage in the 1970s and 1980s.
