This 1996 stamp of Poland depicts the STS General Zaruski, a small sailing ship used in maritime training and education.

From the tallshipsnetwork.com website, "The importance of the STS General Zaruski for Polish sailing is huge, and the vessel is the last existing unit of its kind in Poland and one of the few in Europe. Wooden, traditional gaff ketch, on the initiative of General Mariusz Zaruski, was built in Sweden for the money coming from contributions of members of the Maritime and Colonial League."

On April 7, 2016 Germany issued this stamp depicting Ivory Frigate Carried by Neptune by Jacob Zeller. Zeller completed this piece shortly before his death in 1620. Rather than a tall ship photograph or painting, this is an actual ivory carving 110 cm. (43 3/8") in height. The work is housed in the Green Vault area of the Art Collection of the city of Dresden.

From artisandculture.google, "Only a few months before his death, Jacob Zeller completed this magnificent frigate in ivory...Zeller succeeded in doing what seemed impossible: the parchment thin mainsails cut in ivory, apparently billowing in the wind...Tiny seamen in ivory climb the gold wire rigging."

This Irish stamp (Sc. #665) depicts the paddle steamer Severn, named for the River Severn, the longest river in Great Britain.

The stamp is the lower value of a set of two issued on July 10, 1986 to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the British and Irish Steam Packet Company (B & I).

From Wikipedia, "The B & I was established in Dublin in 1836 with an initial fleet of paddle steamers. The fleet changed to iron in the 1840's and 1850's...The controlling owner of the B & I was the Liverpool Shipping Company...B & I was taken over by the Irish Government in 1965."

On March 19, 1999 Irelands issued a four stamp set of "Maritime History" stamps. The low value 30 p stamp (Hib. #C902) depicts the barque Polly Woodside.

From Wikipedia, "Polly Woodside is a Belfast-built, three-masted, iron-hulled barque preserved in Melbourne, Victoria (Australia)...Polly Woodside is typical of thousands of smaller iron barques built in the last days of sail, intended for deep water trade around the world and designed to be operated as economically as possible."

This August 7, 2008 stamp (Mi. #2686) of Germany commemorates the 50th anniversary of the training vessel Gorch Foch.

From Wikipedia, "The Gorch Foch is a tall ship of the German Navy. She is the second ship of that name and a sister ship of the Gorch Foch built in 1933. Both ships are named in honor of the German writer Johann Kinau who wrote under the pseudonym 'Gorch Foch' and died in the battle of Jutland/Skagerrak in 1916...In January 2019, the (new) ship was reported to be in a 'completely dismantled' state."

So, the future of this three-masted barque is highly questionable, as the cost of repairs has been described as 'astronomical'.
