The angels posted are so beautiful. Thanks for sharing. I never realized how many angels have been depicted on postage. Just wonderful. As gussyboy1 stated - I too hope more angels come out to play.

This advertising label of children's picture book publisher Josef Scholz of Mainz, Germany shows a cherub sitting atop a church steeple. The back of the label shows Mr. Scholz's listing of books and their illustrators.

According to Wikipedia, "A cherub is one of the unearthly beings who directly serves God according to Abrahamic religions...their original duty having been the protection of the Garden of Eden."
