Spain 2018 Traditional Trades - Stained Glass 

Issue date 24 September 2018

To celebrate the traditional trade of stained glass artisans, Correos Spain has issued a premium souvenir sheet with seven stamps and a vignette in the form of a Gothic window, typical of stained glass windows. The stamp and the Premium Sheet are printed on transparent acetate to achieve the translucent effect of stained glass.

The Premium Sheet shows a stained glass artist blowing glass to create beautiful pieces with impossible shapes and vivid colours. The sheet is framed with details recalling stained glass windows, and in one corner, a typical motif of these artworks.
