Jersey Post 2015
Stained Glass Windows

ISSUE DATE: 27 November 2015
STAMP SIZE:45 x 26.53 mm
STAMP DESIGN: Henry Thomas Bosdet

Eight Christmas stamps feature sections from pairs of panes found in the parish churches of St Martin, St Helier, St Saviour and St Brelade in Jersey. The windows depict the Archangel Gabriel and the Virgin Mary during the Annunciation, which appears often in Bosdet's work. It is the announcement by Gabriel to Mary that she would become the mother of Jesus.
