grapes / ぶどう

1948Belgium001

2 February 1948, Belgium
Promotion of Belgium Export

This autumn I have been eating a lots of grapes.  It seems this is a reaction to lack of wine – as I am in the medical treatments for last two months.  Most grapes I eat are from Spain, but it looks grapes were important exporting item of Belgium in 1948.

Although mono coloured and simple design, this stamps has some strong impression for me.

この秋はぶどうを食べ続けています。療養中なのでワインを飲まずに2か月を過ごして、どうやらそのリアクションのようです。今、イギリスで買うぶどうはスペイン産がほとんどですが、1948年当時のベルギーではぶどうも主要な輸出品だったのですね。

単色でシンプルなデザイン、しかもぶどうからはほど遠い色なのに、わたしには魅力的。基本を見直す一枚。

    The Flemish region of Flemish Brabant produces “table grapes” and have a protected designation of origin label. Those grapes are produced for eating not for producing wine : http://www.tafeldruif.be
    The other one on the stamp is the leaf chicory which is also one of the biggest Flemish export !
