TAIPEI (Taiwan News) — Chunghwa Post is to issue a new collection of blue and white pottery stamps on Nov. 15.

To celebrate the beauty of the Chinese cultural relics, many of which are housed in Taiwan’s National Museum of History, Chunghwa Post has been producing blue and white pottery stamps since 2014. A new selection of stamps, based on a blue and white porcelain collection held by the National Palace Museum, will be available later this week.

Chunghwa Post’s blue and white pottery stamps have been consistently voted as the most beautiful in their annual competition. Customers will be able to buy a complete set of four different, partially-embossed stamps decorated with the new designs from Thursday.

The stamp set includes one featuring a bowl decorated with a fish, algae and plum blossom design beloved by Ming Emperor Xuande, another featuring a bowl decorated with a phoenix, one featuring a blue and white pot associated with the Qianlong Emperor, and one featuring a vase painted with the eight auspicious symbols.    [FULL  STOREY]
