Single Bach Postage Stamps (.... the ultimate Bach stamps for decoration purposes)
Have you discovered this detail? The artist was so impressed by the subject of Johann Sebastian Bach that he quickly changed the city of Eisenach to the city of Eisenbach. Solitaire on the wall makes this large stamp perfect, in a series of three similar so even better.
Wall decorations and Bach genealogy. What a motif matching this Bach mission.
First of all: Here we are talking about large-format stamps and Cinderellas, i.e. small pieces of paper that are exactly not stamps. And because it's meant to be a decoration, that's why they're allowed here. And since specialists even argue about whether a Cinderella differs again from a pure printed piece of paper, this hint seems appropriate to me here.
And to the stamp collectors: completing your collection here doesn't seem to be the right place for us ... despite all the joy about a purchase. Stamp dealers are the right address for you if you want to have the Bach collection complete one day.
And what stamps, sets and Cinderellas are on sale here in the shop? Those that are large in size, those that we can buy cheaply and those that together with two or three or four others look excellent as wall decorations.
You are more interested in this now than in redecorating the walls of your house or apartment in the near future. Then click here to view this collection. It is complete. With one small, justified exception. If small pictures – beyond the quality of a Cinderella – are too stupid, too uncommitted or also outrageously expensive, then they are not allowed to enter: into the only complete Bach stamp collection in the world. There is another place where you will find a similar number of stamps. But this collector has only portrayed them ... he doesn't have them to touch. How do we know that? Because there are many there that we made available as motifs. Read more about Cinderella below.
Stamps, we all know them. You stick them on a letter or parcel and use them to pay for transportation. And you can collect them. According to countries and motifs. So my husband is a motif collector, but only those about Bach interest him.
Now, there are states that issue plenty of stamps for a single reason: you want to earn a little money there and appeal to collectors of motifs worldwide. That's legitimate and fair - but hardcore collectors disagree. Such brands are called Cinderellas. Offering them as stamps can be expensive.
Now there are such little papers which are not printed by a state, but by individuals who do not represent any state authority. The origin and authenticity, which the Cinderellas listed above have - is veiled or hidden by wrong spelling. These are neither Cinderellas nor stamps.
And finally, there are fantasy sheets that make it clear that they are not stamps or Cinderellas. That's all right, and for the flow and the effort that someone has made with the printing and the emission, they may – if of high quality – into the collection. But, strictly speaking, they are only beautiful, printed paper. But a Picasso is also a beautiful painted canvas. So why not?
After all, there is a fifth category and that's stupid content, a loveless stomped topic or really just made to earn a golden nose with the motif collectors of the world. We reject this last category in "Bach 4 You" and "Bach über Bach". So it could be that such a little paper runs into your path during your research ... but is not to be found in the collection.
