I wonder if this version has ever been stolen? 

Some lovely stamps.
 I especially like this seal stamp but I suppose that is because I associate seals with old letters.  Sadly, the couple of times I have tried using a seal recently they have been smashed to smithereens by the postal machinery.


  1. Am curious about the stamp up right - with these red sticks (?). Do you know what does this one mean?

    1. They stumped me for a while. On the right hand side of the stamp it says 'Lunar New Year'. I am assuming therefore that the red sticks are Chinese fire crackers of the sort they set off during Chinese New Year celebrations. That's my guess.

  2. You are correct about the Chinese fire crackers.


Welcome. I love it when visitors comment - even if it's only to say "Hi, I've been here!"
