Thanks!

It's amazing the amount of detail in the engraved stamps from Sweden (Slania and Mörck). These images are clearer and larger then my original stamps and easier to view for my eyes haha.

I was actually pretty amazed as I was going through my Norway folder to only find the ones I did. I don't have all stamps of Norway but I don't think I missed much if any of the boat stamps.

I have to find myself a decent scanner to get some of my Dutch stamps digitally archived.

Nice sheet from France. "Bateaux célèbres" means "Famous ships"

The French sheet is quite nice. The French post issues a lot of sheetlets like that I noticed as I've bought some more items from them.

The Canadian souvenir sheet from 1999 is also nice. It's a very original and cool way of making a joint issue.

Those 1981 Swedish Sailing Boats are exactly what I am looking for for my small wooden boats topical collection - Thankyou for posting! I'm off to scour the seven seas for a set...

Have a try at Delcampe. I just had a look and there's still a few out there. I've bought from 2 or 3 of the dealers that have this set without any issues (I won't publicize them in the thread, but if you want any recommendations, just email me).

If you're interested in small wooden boats, there's another 'booklet' set from Sweden from 1988 - Inland Boats from January 29:


If you don't have any from Sweden, I can have a closer look at my albums. Sweden issued quite a few and Norway as well. I don't have any spares though.

Thanks, Andrew! These are exactly the type of thing that I love. I have been singling out small wooden boats that I just happen to find in my worldwide collection. The more I get into it, the more I will be searching out specifics. I love the nordic countries' stamps anyway. Coming from the North West of Scotland, there are such strong cultural links, maybe there's some stamp-loving Viking DNA in me somewhere!

Hahah, you've just made my job more difficult as you mentioned Viking ships. I've seen a lot of those in my Sweden and Norway collections. It's no surprise since they have a rich history of Vikings. Luckily I don't have, yet, any really old items from Iceland, Finland or Denmark.

I'll go searching and upload some to post them here.

I warn you I'm a bit of a procrastinator, especially during the week (work...).

The only one I found from Sweden from 1930s to 1989 (that I have) was this:

1973 Ancient Art

And this one is art and not an actual photo of the boat.

There's also the 1979 Gota Canal set I posted in the Engravers topic.

Not exactly a gold mine!

Norway will have a few more.

They're all nice, but the ones from Sweden will be tough to beat.

The small wooden ships seem to have hijacked the tall ships' thread. Aplogies from the flotilla....
But aren't they lovely..?
Thankyou so much for posting.
P.S. I just received the Swedish set from eBay....

Good for you stampgal. Hope you can find the other sets you want as well.

And, Kirk, I totally agree, the Swedish ones are brilliant. I've fallen in love with engraved stamps. The 'photo' ones just don't do it for me unless they're amazing. While an engraved stamp always looks great.
