Island in wave

海に浮かぶ島々の国

1933 Denmark
issued 1990 ( 25 øre ) and 1983 ( 100 øre )
design by J. Therchilsen in 1906
engraver J. Britze ( original 1933 ) and Czeslaw Slania ( 25 øre )

Both based on a definitive stamp design from 1906, and modified a little bit in 1933.  It is graphically stabled and very clear to carry charactor of the country, as well as liberal enough to limit expression of the royal Coat of arms – many reasons could be think of why the design of this stamp had survived this long.

発行は1990年(25オーレ)と1983年(100オーレ)ですが、デザインは1906年のものが使われ、中心の輪が2重になったのが1933年のようです。このデザインはそのまま2004年まで発行が続きました。国のキャラクターが良く表現され、王室の紋章の使い方が控えめで民主的であり、デザイン的にも古びるところがない、、、こんなに長く使い続けられるデザインは、やはり優れたたくさんのポイントがあるようです。
