  1. Very beautiful sheetlet! Elegantly done, depicting such exotic places of interest! Would love to go for this one, worth it all…

  2. My father, George Barsony is the sculptor who made the St Francis statue in his home town of Pecs, when he was 21 years old. He immigrated to Australia after the war.Even though the name Barsony does translate to Velvet, it would be best to keep his name as he is known. George Barsony is the creator of the Barsony Black lady Lamps, which are eagerly sought after by collectors around the world. He is now 93 and is quite frail. I would love to be able to purchase a copy of the stamps to give to him. How would I go about this?

    thank you
