Jersey Festive Scenes - 88p Sheet of Ten

Jersey Festive Scenes - 88p Sheet of Ten

£8.80

The 88p stamp illustrates L'Île au Guerdain and a festive robin. L'Île au Guerdain is a small rocky island in Portelet Bay, on the south west coast of Jersey. Portelet Tower, a Martello tower, sits atop the Island, which can be reached by foot at low tide. In summer, the bay is a popular spot for sunbathers. In winter, the windswept beach and tidal island are a magical place to escape the festive hustle and bustle and blow the cobwebs away.

The stamp sheets give the discerning collector access to all the printer's marks and any additional information on the selvedges.
