2015 71¢ Vintage Tulip

Weddings Series

 

The tulip was chosen for the 2015 Weddings two-ounce stamp because it is a traditional declaration of devotion.  This stamp was issued for use on wedding invitations and greeting cards that require extra postage.  A coordinating Vintage Rose Forever stamp was also released for use on wedding RSVP cards and thank you notes.

 

Often emerging even before the last winter snow has melted, tulips are true messengers of spring.  In ancient Turkey and Persia, tulips represented perfect love.  Different colors were associated with various depths of love from true romantic feelings to cheerful thoughts of friendship.

 

Jeanne Greco designed the Vintage Tulip stamp using drawings from engraved plates made by Maria Sibylla Merian (1647-1717), a naturalist artist.  Greco added a small, dark red heart for a touch of color.  This stamp was printed using engraving, unlike most modern stamps that are lithographed.
