Joint issue by Russia and Argentina Post “Sharing Our Traditions”. 2 bright stamps introduced

December 5th, 2016 is glad to inform our readers that Rusmarka and Argentina Post have released two special stamps under the title “Sharing Our Traditions”. The postage stamps feature a single tea set and mate. Let’s appreciate these bright items together!

The peoples of Argentina and Russia treat their traditions and customs with care passing them down from generation to generation. The joint issue is dedicated to tea ceremonies of the two countries that have their own specific traits.

In Russia, porcelain or faience single tea sets consisting of small cups and saucers are used for tea-parties. The people of Argentina mainly drink mate tea; its preparation process is a sacred ritual.

Additionally, FSUE PTC “Marka” will manufacture an illustrated cover with the Argentinean and Russian stamps and a first day cover with cancellation (Moscow) inside.
