Starting a new thread to continue this discussion.

OK, Rod. Maybe this will help with sorting out the roses. Photos are a hodge-podge from around the Internet. Also, there are a couple of flower sets that aren't part of the rose series that may contain roses. I included them at the bottom. If you have any that aren't shown here, let me know and I'll track them down.

Also, I reduced the size of some of the photos for presentation here. It you need the larger versions, let me know.

Roses Sets


MiNr. 1669-1672 (Famous Roses)



MiNr. 1734-1738 (First Lady Roses)

MiNr. Block 395



MiNr. 1769-1773 (Lovers' Roses)

MiNr. Block 401

MiNr. Block A401



MiNr. 1945-1948 and Block 423 (Grace Flowers, includes flowers other than roses)


These are called "Garden Flowers", and include flowers other than roses.

I think Michel has a mistake in this listing because I did find a Block, but with 1949 instead of 1950.

MiNr. 1949 in Block 424?

MiNr. 1950

MiNr. 1951



MiNr. 2078-2082 (Queens Roses)

MiNr. Block 453



MiNr. 2083-2088 and Block 454 (Orange Roses)



MiNr. 2089-2093 (1st Prize Roses)

MiNr. Block 455



MiNr. 2094-2098 and Block 456 (Tender Roses)



MiNr. 2413-2417 (Imperial Roses) - couldn't find a photo of Block 500

MiNr. Block 499



MiNr. 2418-2422 (Red Roses)

MiNr. Block 501



MiNr. 2423-2427 (Her Majesty's Roses) - couldn't find photos of the Blocks


MiNr. 2428-2432 (Superb Roses) - couldn't find photos of one of these

MiNr. 2428

MiNr. 2429

MiNr. 2430

Wow! Wow!
Postmaster, that is incredible !
That is going to take some time to sink in.
You are some sort of wizard.

I'll work on Ajman tomorrow, and post my findings.

Accept a Gold Logie....

Irregularity.
MiNr. 2138-2143 (European Flowers)

We may have an interloper here, or, Michel is in error.
The top left hand stamp is 1 Riyals, not 1 Riyals
and "Aster" does not seem to match web images of this genus.

Any gardeners can correct moi.

Michel does not list 1 Riyal in this group.

(Gee, I dislike this new HP cordless keyboard, so much re-typing required.)

Rod,

Has to be an error in the catalog. I noted a couple others over the course of this series, particularly in the flower names.

The stamp definitely belongs in that set:

Genius !
If we manage to get them all, I'll email Michel with Images and Catalogue numbers, see if they wish to include in next edition.

Wow, Postmaster and Rodney!

Thanks very much! I also have some of this series, and I noticed what seemed like inconsistencies or, at least, ambiguities in the German-language catalog, and set them aside to deal with sometime later. I haven't gotten back around to them yet, but really appreciate this reference! (There are a couple of other series I'll also have some questions about.)

A masterful job, PMGS!

So the flowers on 2138-2143 are as follows:

75dh - Rose
1R - Coreopsis tinctoria
1.25R - Cactus Dahlia
2R - Rose
2.50R - Iris (single orange flower)
2.50R - Aster (3 red flowers)

I could not find a reference to a Gertrude Gregory Rose online so I'm not sure which color rose is that one or if the name is even correct. Asters are just one of many daisy-like flower species so that stamp may not actually picture asters.

Just an update from my end.
I have mislaid my stash of roses,
Perhaps I thought I would never ID them.
They are packed away I presume in one of the numerous boxes I have.
Sorry.
Shall continue when they decide to be re discovered.
