The DSF issued quite a few cinderella stamps over the years. Colnect has over 600 such stamps listed - although I don't know if that listing is complete or not:

The 1987 sheet which includes the two stamps affixed to the above cover can be seen here: https://colnect.com/en/stamps/stamp/1068993

Thanks Honza, Roger and HalfpennyYellow, for the information you provided. I wondered what is "nachträglich entwertet" and learned a new thing.

This postal stationary was sent registered and express on September 28, 1984 from Wermsdorf, DDR to a stand of VEB Philatelie Wermsdorf (stamp company in DDR, probably governmental) in the Philatelia '84 stamp exhibition hall in Stuttgart, W. Germany:
DDR 1984 Philately PS.jpg
On the back, Cinderella label cancelled with a commemorative postmark, both publicizing the exhibition. Arrival postmark applied in Bebra on October 1, and in Stuttgart on October 2, 1984. I have no idea why this cover was received first in Bebra:

Ahoj Eli!

Another nice cover which could also grace the Express Letter thread!

VEB = Volkseigener Betrieb = publicly-owned enterprise, so you are quite right in thinking that VEB Philatelie Wermsdorf was 'governmental'.

Notice also VEB WERTPAPIERDRUCKEREI DER DDR = publicly-owned security printers of the DDR.

I once had a speedo-type bathing-costume dutifully marked VEB, but I restricted public access :lol:

Cheers,

Honza

Thanks again, honza, for extra great information which I will already copied to my data. :)

I received from an Australian friend a gift of Czechoslovakian stamps and several Cinderella labels. Let me share them with you although not always know about them. The first one is from 1915. My translator says it "Weekly Exhibition":

The evidence supports identifying as Swedish the cinderella just shown to us by RevRed+.

I have a nice collection of Calgary Stampede covers. These were postmarked at the Post Office on the Stampede grounds each day of this famous annual event. Recently I added this 10 Aug 1941 cover, addressed locally:

It seems to have undergone several printings. The Stampede subject shown above adds an exclamation: See CANADA!
and text about visiting Alberta. The two examples below have no text in the panel at the base. The first has
no exclamation after See CANADA, while the second has an exclamation: See CANADA!

Hi

I recently picked these Bible/religious cinderella stamps up and I cannot find anything about them apart from a couple being sold individually on eBay.

I have 90 different ones in total.

It would be great to hear from anyone who knows a bit more about them please.

Thank you

I recall being given stamps rather like this in my Church of England Sunday school, probably around the early 1970s. After each topic or bible passage studied we would get one to stick in our book....

It’s a shame, but my old Sunday school books containing them went missing years ago!

The “Corean Clown”: Tracing the history of a philatelic fantasy (1965)

The strange looking label illustrated here has been around for a long time, as a matter of fact, since 1879, and for some reason it has become known to collectors of album weeds as the “Corean Clown”. While its connection with the philately of Korea is remote, to say the least, the following facts concerning it may be of interest. 

The original label, differing somewhat in detail from the illustration, was brought to the attention of collectors in the “Timbre Poste” in 1879, the year of its first appearance. Purely fanciful in design, the central figure was said to be an effigy of the King of Corea, while the hodge podge of odd symbols and letters could best be described as out of this world. In a further description of the label which appeared in “Correire Dei Franco Bolli” in April 1879 it was scarcely necessary to indicate its bogus nature; seemingly it would delude no one. Nevertheless, copies are known “used” on cover in the famed Tapling collection in the British Museum and the durable nature of the fraud is attested to by its illustration in J. B. Moen’s Catalog of 1883 and again in 1904 “Hobbies” magazine felt called upon to further denounce the fanciful character of the label.

The original was found in only one form, with a saw toothed roulette and printed on blue wove paper in red ink. The passage of the years made the original label increasingly scarce, so it was that about 1930 a “reissue” was made, this time imperforate, and only in the colors of black on red, green, purple, yellow, blue and orange.

Seemingly, the market for such fantasies remained unsatisfied, so in more recent years a forgery of the original fantasy was created, probably in England where it appears that there is a certain affection for the perpetuation of old time philatelic hoaxes, despite the fact that there is an ample supply of more modern, expensive and well documented rubbish from such places as Sharjah, Umm Al Qiwain, etc.

The more current confection which is illustrated above, is found either imperforate or with saw tooth roulette, and it comes in a color to match or contrast with any album … deep red, blue, yellow, grey, orange, blackon green, or black on blue to name a few. With the passage of time the forgery has become larger in size and a few extra ornaments have appeared in the design.

The “Corean Clown” has proved to be a durable fraud, now 86 years of age it seems a sure bet to reach the century mark, but even at 100 years of age it will be no more convincing than it was in 1879. After all, the Korea philatelist has many more deceptive album weeds than this one to uproot from his stamp garden.

My local stamp society, here in the Philippines releases a Cinderella stamp/seal every month with fake denomination. The stamp is released electronically and has a QR code. Members can print and use them on cover. They also have a "local post office" postmark for Manila and Angeles City. Here is an example on cover:

I am not sure if it truly fits the "CINDERELLA stamps" category but thought id share it for viewing.

Cheers

This artistic set of German cinderellas celebrates the twelve months. They were all designed by the same artist — initials M. S. (perhaps a viewer of this post will be able to identify him/her). The style of the artwork, including the muted choice of one colour to lift the largely black design, suggests that they were produced quite early last century — perhaps pre-WWI, but in any case, probably no later than mid-1920s.

The text on each stamp is entirely focused on characterising the relevant month, such as "Wine Month" for October, "Wind Month" for November, and "Christ[mas] Month" for December. Thus, as a group, they refer to no particular event, and no particular company or product. I conclude that they are not Reklamemarkeadvertising stamps, but purely decorative, artistic works.

May I suggest that they represent the category art cinderellas. If they were produced with any particular use in mind, that might have been for a journal or diary writer to add to the first page of each month of their book, enhancing its pages and marking the start of each new month with anticipation of what would be happening in the countryside during that month. Alternatively, in the days when people kept scrapbooks, they might have been used to fill one page of a scrapbook, decoratively adding to the artistic appeal of the whole book.

A beautiful set. Thank you for sharing them with us :D

The set of twelve German art cinderellas shown by 22028 made me think of the many sets of twelve cinderellas produced by the Swiss chocolate company Tobler. (They came in twelves because each set was conveniently printed in 3x4 sheets, stamps in "portrait" format.)


In the case of the Tobler cinderellas, they are truly Reklamemarkeadvertising stamps/cinderellas, because they always name and promote the Tobler Company. They were superficially "artistic", but their primary motivation was advertising (and their artistic quality is far below that of the German art cinderellas shown two posts earlier). The Tobler Company wanted chocolate-lovers to collect these stamps, and issued a wide variety of thematic sets of 12. I think they even produced special albums in which the stamps could be mounted.

There is also a linguistic story to be told to accompany the Tobler cinderellas.

The Happy Day thread is celebrating Skiing Saturday.

I have added a post showing this 1938 Australian poster stamp:

Australia, 1938: Skiing on Mt Kosciusko<br />Cinderella/poster stamp promoting 150th anniversary<br />of European settlement in Australia<br />(brown frame: later issues had orange frame)<br />(eBay item)

.
The set of poster stamps celebrating the 150th anniversary of European settlement was printed as a 7x7 sheet.
Here is an example, currently on eBay:

A later set, with orange frames, is scarcer.

The stamp is released electronically and has a QR code. Members can print and use them on cover. They also have a "local post office" postmark for Manila and Angeles City. Here is an example on cover:

I am not sure if it truly fits the "CINDERELLA stamps" category but thought id share it for viewing.

Cheers
Can you be more specific - I can't see any QR codes there.

Somebody was asking about Boy's Town, Nebraska, labels on cover/card.

I can't find that thread - can anybody provide a link please because I have found a source who wants to sell.

Thanks Roger, I found that one.

Well done MJK_58. Dave Heslop's New Zealand Cinderellas Catalog (2022) is the "go-to" reference work for New Zealand cinderellas. 👍

Privately issued and not valid for postage, except maybe for carriage from the island to the mainland, if Sveriges Post didn't provide such a service.
