Stamps from China
It's nearly my bedtime so a post in haste to show you these lovely stamps which arrived all together on three separate cards from China.
The first set appears to show traditional occupations, the second commemorates the handover of the Olympics from Beijing To London, and the third actually illustrates stamps which originally illustrated articles from the National Museum of China. Stamps within stamps. According to my correspondent, the bronze "ding" (an enormous cooking pot) on the right was originally identified incorrectly as Si Mu Wu but is now the Hou Mu Wu Ding. I'm not sure of the significance of that.
