I will conclude this mini-survey of Albert Decaris's work with images of a couple more stamps depicting ships, designed and engraved by this French master.

Arne Kühlmann was a superb engraver of many Danish stamps.
When he first started engraving in 1974 he only worked on a few
because Slania was still engraving the majority of Danish
stamps but within a few years Kühlmann did all most of them.


I don't have Scott numbers for these only Michel.

Michel 660



Michel 661




This closeup shows the fine detail.

Nice nethryk. I also have those and most Danish from the
fifties to the eighties and many from Greenland.

I was really attracted to these stamps at the time,
naturally due to their engraving.
My only complaint would be their rather small format.

Do you have any additional info about Kühlmann ?
What was the last stamp he engraved?
Is he even still alive?

Vittorio Nicastro (1916-?), an Italian artist and engraver, produced a number of beautiful stamps from the mid-1950s to the mid-1970s. Here are images of some examples of Nicastro's engraving skills.

lithograving - Thanks. I don't have any biographical information about Arne Kühlmann. I do know that he was still engraving for Denmark in 2006, as he is credited for some work on the three stamp New Carlsberg Glyptotek Centenary litho & engraved set issued on June 7, 2006, Scott Nos. 1354-56. I think I remember that he wrote an article about engraving a couple of years ago; I'll look for it in my clippings files. For sure I haven't heard that he is dead! - nethryk

The following is an article from the January 1989 issue
of PFC Journal, Danish Post.


Here is a brief summary of the development of engraved stamps
featuring Arne Kühlmann's Danish Agricultural Museum stamp.

Michel 953












The first wavy-line stamp was designed by J. Therchilsen
and issued on 22 July 1905 Until 1933, the wavy-line stamps were printed by the Copenhagen printer H.H. Thiele.
Then, Post- og Telegrafvæsenet (Post Denmark's predecessor) took over.
At the same time, the method of printing was changed to steel engraving.

The original engraving was made by Johannes Britze which were later
modified by Arne Kühlmann for the changes in value.

****CORRECTION****
The same design is still in use which makes it I
believe the longest running same design definitive.


Apparently the oldest series are Norway's "Post Horn" stamps

Arne Kühlmann's first effort was this
1974 Tivoli Gardens issue.
The engraver said it was one of the best stamps he's done.

Well Phil, no wonder since you've been paying too much attention to
those Three Graces.

AHEM! Aglaea ("Splendor"), Euphrosyne ("Mirth"), and Thalia ("Good Cheer") asked me to send their kindest regards to all of their fans here at SCF.

Now, moving right along: Over a stamp engraving career spanning some 30 years, Jean de Vos produced some outstanding stamps for Belgium. Here are images of several of them from my collection.
