Another nice stamp.

Based on a painting in the Louvre. She is playing an instrument, a type of bass lute with an extended neck that is known as a theorbo. Thanks for posting the sheet!

Some musical instrument mint sheets, Germany Berlin 9nb101-104.
As you can see they are about 1/2 inch longer then my sheet protectors so these may be on my short list to divest of once I can figure out valuation. I know there's been a lot of talk about modern US sheets being worth no more than face value, not sure if that extends to international sheets also...

ok, not a stamp but is a program from what looks to be a Musical stamp designer and engraver show at the French postal museum in 1979. Front cover and some of the contents.

Thanks Gibby for posting this brochure. Here is the issued stamp shows the 15th century miniature painting "The Lady with Swans", designed by Pierrette Lambert, engraved by Claude Haley and issued by France on January 13, 1979:

I scanned in high resolution the area shows the musical instrument. I can'r recognize it and maybe there is some information on your brochure:
