Re-uses of Early Engravings

Sweden
In an enlarged kaleidoscopic presentation, Sweden Post has combined four engraved stamps to show the design variety of the past century. The issue is to mark the 150th anniversary of the Stamps of Sweden Post in 2005. All of the original stamps were engraved, as have been a majority of the Swedish stamps over that period. 

Sweden 1972. Gustavian Art, "Woman with Veil". Original issue engraved by Slania.

  • Sweden 1972. Gustavian Art, "Woman with Veil". Original issue engraved by Slania.

  • Sweden 2005. Commemorative booklet-pane commemorating the sesquicentennial of Swedish Post Stamps, containing the re-use of Slania's engraving from 1972. 

The upper left stamp show part of the Slania engraving of "Woman with Veil" from a painting by Alexander Roslin, which was issued in 1972, for the Gustavian Art commemoration. Each of the stamps illustrated are printed in a single colour, except for the "Lady" which has a slight 'blush' of colour in the face, similar to the original issue. 

Sweden 2005. Commemorative booklet-pane commemorating the sesquicentennial of Swedish Post Stamps, containing the re-use of Slania's engraving from 1972.

The gold ring surrounding the pie-shaped samples of the stamp designs contains credit for each of the engravers, including Slania, the year of issue and the event being marked. All stamps are denominated "Brev Inrikes" for the standard domestic letter rate. These four designs were printed by intaglio, which was necessary because all of the images are enlarged from the originals.

Also Monaco has re-used Slania-designs in stamp issues released after his passing. Such examples will be listed and shown here at a later day.
