Charity Seal SSBM

"The French Society for the Assistance of Wounded Servicemen".
The S.S.B.M (Société de Secours aux Blessés Militaires),
the first Red Cross society in France, was established in 1866.
Continuing its efforts to help survivors of conflict, the S.S.B.M
provided aid to those whose lives were disrupted by World War I.

Any members come across a French Stamp Designer MADAMOISELLE MAUCHIEN ?
Or is she lost to the sands of time.?

Whichever, a lovely design, the Fort at Sfax
Sc# B81 1945
Intriguing designs inside the stars.

One thing that strikes me about the Mariannes is that I don't much like them, aside from Dulac and the Delacroix. The most recent on your scan isn't bad either. Prefer the various Ceres series. Dulac was (with Eric Gill, who designed the surrounds) also responsible, inter alia, for the GB George VI definitives. He had a good deal of interference from de Gaulle on the edge design of the Londres issue.

Rod222:
The first allegory of the Republic in the guise of a woman wearing a Phrygian cap dates back to the French Revolution: this cap worn by freed slaves in Greece and Rome, appreciated by sailors and galley slaves in the Mediterranean, is proudly taken up by the revolutionaries from the South as an emblem of freedom.

Thanks Vayolene! and I didn't even have to ask (But wondered)

Thanks Perf 12, Yes very cognisant of the Phrygian cap (looks wonderful on the young ladies)
Often seen on stamps of South America

Geoff, as you may remember I am a huge fan of Edmund Dulac
I have a collection of his stamps
(My favourite Marianne also)

How beautiful is this ?

That's lovely, although I can see why it wasn't adopted - George becomes a bit of a side-show. He also has a bit of a severe expression, as if he'd just missed a low-flying pheasant.

I just returned from visiting a friend in France. On Friday, I bought stamps at the post office in Saint-André-de-Cubzac. They had several miniature sheets and souvenir sheets on sale. These, now, come in pockets. I quite liked the miniature sheet reproducing a postcard from the 1870s.



The miniature sheet holds a reproduction of acontemporary 'Ceres' stamp, inscribed 'LA POSTE 2022 - 3,30€'.



The white patch is the reflection of the scanner from the pocket in which the miniature sheet comes.

A couple of items from the material I posted earlier on the "what's arrived on my doorstep" thread. Cover and piece from 1937 including enamel-surfaced Cinderellas of Prince Jean and his son, Prince Henri, Orleanist pretenders to the French throne. Sent from Besancon by Jean Forges to, I presume, his daughter, in Roanne.
