re: Spanish Engravings

Too bad that engraved stamps are a thing of the past. I always considered them be miniature works of art.

Those are beautiful! Do you know who the engraver was?

re: Spanish Engravings

Very nice, Michael. I hadn't seen those before. Thanks for sharing them with us.

I've gotta agree with others that the engraved stamps are the best and many clearly qualify as works of art. I don't know that I would have gotten back into collecting in the '80s if it hadn't been for the attraction of those fantastic late 19th and early 20th century engraved masterpieces.

re: Spanish Engravings

The engraver of the Cervantes stamp was Enrique Vaquer (1874-1931). He also did some stamps for Bulgaria, notably the 1921 King Boris definitive and the James Bourchier portrait. And a splendid stamp for Turkey in 1914 - portrait of Sultan Mohammed V.

Not to be confused with El Vaquero who engraves leather boots (yes, really).

And Enrique also engraved the buildings.

My info comes from Gibbons, the Collecting By Engraver forum (SCF), from Adrian Keppel's Stamp Engravers database and from John Armstrong's database.
