Iris flower necklace, handmade with vintage postage stamp from Deutsche Bundepost in the early 1980s, silver plated pendant with length adjustable chain.

The West German postal agency Deutsche Bundepost released the flower stamps circa 1980-81 and this one was removed from an envelope postmarked 1982. The stamp is used, it has visible cancellation mark and a small, light, surface stain which the glaze would not adhere to (marked in the second image) its quite lovely, and adds to the intrigue: what kind of news did this stamp carry and what did it go through to end up with a permanent mark?

Details

The original postage stamp is set under glass, in a shiny silver plated 35mm round pendant setting, and comes on 24" long silver plated ball and chain necklace, easily trims to shorter lengths.
