France 1973 - Moliere

I just discovered this delightful stamp from France, issued in 1973...

This stamp was issued to commemorate the 300th anniversary of the death of French playwright, Moliere. The stamp depicts Moliere dressed in costume as Sganarelle. Sganarelle was a character from a Moliere play entitled, Sganarelle, ou Le Cocu Imaginaire, The Imaginary Cuckold. This fantastic stamp was engraved by Jacques Derrey. This is the first stamp I've seen by this engraver and I like what I see. I shall have to look up his other works,

Until next time...

Stay Engraver Crazy!
