Sunday Stamps: 'J' is for jurk

As we pronounce the 'j' not the English way, but as a 'y' instead, and the 'u' as a kind of 'e' in the word 'er', it is clear that a Dutch 'jurk' is far from the English 'jerk' :-)

These two jurken I received from Eva from Spain (thank you!!).
While there exist many stamps on traditional clothing/costumes, I think it is the very first time that I see a stamp dedicated to a dress itself.

See more stamps on the letter 'j' at and via today's Sunday Stamps!

  1. Now that you mention it, I don't think I've ever seen a stamp with just a dress on it before, either.
    It's a lovely dress for dancing in :)

  2. Another way to use a letter in an unexpected way. A dress on its own is certainly unusual.

  3. I think this is a very creative set of stamps from Spain.

  4. This stamp belong to a 4-stamps set dedicated to the fashion designer Pertegaz. There are several issues, in different years, dedicated to fashion designers. So you can find some staps with dresses, in Spain :)

    (Haven't I sent more dresses, Heleen? I think I had sent you the four!)

    1. Er... I must confess that I don't remember exactly... I remember an other stamp. But usually I am rather blind for mode / moda, and stamps about clothing get a little less attention from me than they deserve. You might be right, though I think I remember one other stamp, and I should look in my 'archives' (but by lack of an efficient archival system - that is: my incoming mail is kept in several places in my house without a proper system - it might take some / a lot of time to check...)...

  5. That is a nice summery dress, perfect for the sunshine of Spain.
