2776 ROMANIA - Greetings from Romania

At the end of the 19th century and the beginning of 20th century were issued numerous postcards "Greetings from Romania" with images depicting people in traditional costumes and scenes of rural life. The one from the image is a contemporary reproduction of such a postcard, slightly modified from the original. Text on the front was rearranged to occupy the right side, back then intended for writing message (on the most postcards issued before 1898 the back was undivided, and the writing was not allowed on the side with the address up in 1907).

About the stamp
The stamp is part of the third set of a very extensive series, entitled Romanian Pottery, about which I wrote here.
