timbres667 & spanishmoss - Glad you liked those yummy-looking berries. But it seems as though this thread must've slipped on a banana peel during the summer.

Here is an image of a postage due stamp depicting tropical fruits, designed by Charles Hourriez, engraved by Emile Feltesse (but printed by photogravure by Hélio Vaugirard, Paris), and issued for use in Martinique on February 15, 1963, Scott No. J27, SG No. D13.

Thought I'd posted these, but maybe there's another bowl of fruit out there somewhere.

Banana stamps...



These stamps were designed by Charlie Charlie (Charlotte Ostrom and Rikard Gartmyr). Charlie Charlie also designed the typography on the stamps, the FDC illustration (banana grandfather with banana dachshund), the FDC cancellation (banana girl with flower) and the illustration for the collector's sheet, a loose interpretation of artist Josephine Baker with her famous banana skirt.

Are those banana stamps real??? They look like stickers (but then, so do a lot of stamps these days, I guess).

Hey - one of my slowly starting topical collections is food and fruits ... is there a clearinghouse of fruit stamp listings? (though, there must be thousands, eh?)

If only I had the ability to scan ... grrrr

centerstage,yes, the banana stamps are real.

Bananas on Swedish stamps
These stamps have a historical background (100 years since banana imports to Sweden began) and the concept is based on the characters being 'oldies'.

The yellow bodies and all the details of the banana figures have been modeled in a special clay fired at 130ºC. The fine details, such as the heart on the letter, were fired separately.

Here is an image of a stamp depicting Queen Elizabeth and some breadfruit, engraved and printed by Thomas De La Rue & Co., and issued for use in Jamaica on December 17, 1956, Scott No. 164, SG No. 164. This is the fruit made famous by Mutiny on the "Bounty," a novel written by Charles Nordhoff and James Norman Hall and published in 1932, and the several movies based upon the novel which have been subsequently released.
