Thank you, Khatuna, for sending this nice cover from Georgia! It was posted in Tbilisi on August 1 and arrived on August 9, 2010.
Khatuna attached 8 different stamps commemorating theatres of the Caucasian region: the drama theatres of Kutaisi, Tskhinvali, Tbilisi, Sukhumi, and Batumi; and the Academic Theatre and Opera and Ballet Theatre of Tbilisi.
The two left stamps were issued on December 11, 2000, and commemorates the Georgian-Russian Reflector Project.
Khatuna sent me again a beautiful cover from Georgia. There are a lot of nice stamps attached: The top left stamp was issued in 2006 and commemorates the 250th birthday of the famous composer W. A. Mozart (1756-1791). The next stamp depicts the white-tailed eagle (Haliaeetus albicilla L.). Then there is a 2006 stamp depicting an old painting. The two stamps at the right are the two stamps of the EUROPA set issued on May 27, 2005. The set has the topic “Food & Cooking”.
In the bottom left corner there is one 2007 stamp depicting the Kazbeg mountain, which is the third highest mountain in Georgia. The neighbour stamp is the same 2006 stamp as above depicting the painting.
Khatuna, thank you for sending me such a beautiful cover again!
Cover from Georgia, posted in Tbilisi on October 17, 2008.
This beautiful cover has eight different stamps attached. The top left stamp has a face value of 30 tetri and shows the Tbilisi Opera and Ballet Theatre, which was built in 1851. In 1874 it burnt down completely and was rebuilt in 1896. The second stamp (face value 30 tetri) shows a view on Batumi, the capital of the autonomous republic Adjara located at the Black Sea. The third stamp (face value 20 tetri) in the top row is of a series depicting old precious pectoral crosses. The next stamp shows grapes (Rkhatsiteli); Georgia has some very good wine!
The two stamps in the second row have a face value of 1 lari and 20 tetri resp. The first seems to depict a kind of allegory (?) and the second is an EUROPA stamp.
In the last row there is a stamp of the cross series again (face value 50 tetri), and finally the last stamp (30 tetri) on this beautiful cover depicts the Tbilisi Drama Theatre.
Thank you very much, Khatuna, for this really marvelous cover!
