For Sunday Stamps this week, we have folk costumes. these are only five of the set of eight issued for various regions around Poland in 1969 and designed by graphic designer Stefan Malecki
Krzczonów is a village in southeast Poland
(don't you just love that feather in his cap?)
Łowicz is a small town between Warsaw and Łódź in central Poland
(I like how her braid is swinging!)
Rozbark is a village in Upper Silesia
(I'm sure the hand positions mean something, no?)
Dolnośląsk is Lower Silesia (in Polish)
the folk costumes are from the Wrocław area
Sącz is a region south of Nowy Sącz.
(that ruffle on her waistband is something I haven't seen before)
I boosted the colour a little to see if it would help make the images clearer, but they are not very crisp to begin with.
one site had dates listed from 1804-1811, but then I thought maybe they weren't dates, but just some sort of stock number. they are all very different from each other and I wish I could find some information on them. but sadly, nothing.
