vaulting and arches


28 February 1966 UK
900th Anniversary of Westminster Abbey
design & engraving: Bradbury, Wilkinson & Co.

I am amazed sometimes by a stamp design which is depicting the depth of a room and sense of space within a little piece of paper.

This stamp is showing Fan Vaulting of the Henry Ⅶ Chapel, which was built in 16th century.  This was the last stamp with the portrait of the Queen before an introduction of her silhouette, and the portrait is beautifully engraved to match the impressive interior.
