I have (see below for that story) this 2" x 3 15/16ths" multi-color cinderella about which I know little:

1. Russian due to flag
2. Circa 1900 due to when Russia last controlled Finland.
3. Lapps (now known as Sami or Saami) in their reindeer sleigh.
4. The oblong label (pink-orange here) area on a Russian cinderella was often meant to have an over print of some type of propaganda.

UPDATE (Edit): Seems produced in Germany in sheets of 40 different designs all with the theme of The Mail (or Post) in some geographic area, such as Finland, Samoa, Turkey, Germany. Perhaps all 40 designs can be posted here as they surface. Of all the images I have seen so far (few) all are perforated, except for one example which may have lost its perfs due to close scissor trimming. The oblong area is blank or has what looks to be commercial business information (I don't read German).

What is it? How was it used or what was its intended function. Year(s) of production/use? Any with printing in the oblong area? What if any monetary value and the publication or market which establishes the amount? Other versions?

And, of course, where can I find more?



The story:

After 100+ years of rattling around in the world, it landed in India and was posted on eBay. I excitedly purchased it and paid for it. Seller then asks me if I would cancel the sale of the many items I purchased in addition to this cinderella because there was now a blockade of mail to the USA issued by the Indian Government to extend several months through at least January 31, 2022. Ah, no! Seller held my material and my payment months but finally shipped it, arriving in my hands long after my family members from the area could still tell me about it.

This UK seller has quite a few German Cinderella poster stamps from the same series as yours. Below is a link to one but if you look at his other listings you will find other Countries as well.

The empty panels on cinderellas usually indicate an area where a company can have their name and address printed. You see this most often on trade fair labels where various vendors use the same labels.

I believe you are probably correct on your dating. Chromolithograph printing was popular in Germany around that time.

rod222, what am I looking at or for at the link? And the card shown is related how?

Edit: Perhaps I am lost as I don't read German.

See rogdcam answer, but, looking at Bob's suggestion,
really not pertinent.

I was thinking a set by Julius Cohn, but could be any business
printed in the oval space.
Referred to, as a "Keyplate" ?

Thanks rod222. If available, point me in the correct direction.

The eBay UK link listed two examples.

Nice work Jill

Hope that helps, PPG.
That block of 4 had sold,
Could not drill down.

I used the text string "Die Post in" at eBay

Thinking a postman on a cow /steer? looked kind out of place for me,
I thought it was Namibian's with cleft sticks were the postmen.
Looks like soldier to me.

This material has a "Delandres" scent, for me.

Searching for a real image of a postman on a steer
gave me this. A FYI
