Antique French-Indochinese Postage Stamp Earrings - Blue

Details

This French-Indochinese stamp was issued on June 12, 1939 to commemorate the Golden Gate Exposition being held in San Francisco. The enchanting image on this stamp is the Chùa Một Cột, the One Pillar Pagoda. Built in 1049 CE, it forms the most famous part of a historic Buddhist temple complex in Hanoi’s central Ba Đình district. This was the main design of this stamp series.
.
On February 18 1939, the Golden Gate International Exposition opened in San Francisco, mainly in celebration of the opening of the Bay Bridge in 1936 and the Golden Gate Bridge in 1937. The event, themed “Pageant of the Pacific,” was held on Treasure Island, an artificial 400-acre island made from the sand of San Francisco Bay during 1936-7. Along the shores of the island was the Pacific area – a group of buildings representing 20 nations around the Pacific Rim.
French Indochina was one of the lands represented. The exposition closed on September 29, 1940.
.
This 23c stamp denomination paid the ground-postal rate to foreign countries.
.
Simply trimmed in periwinkle faux crystal.
.
I could only source one stamp for this pair, so one is original and one is a repro.

Inspiration/Story Behind This Product

I grew up in Asia, mainly Japan. I love the Japanese aesthetic, and was thrilled to find a way to wear stamps! Japan issued a line of these stamps, and this image is my favorite: nestled in red and gold.
