Portuguese Fruits - Set
Portuguese Fruits - Set for only GBP £3.20
CTT’s decision to launch a stamp issue dedicated to Portuguese Fruits is a tribute to Portugal, a small country that boasts a wide range of fruits, of which we can and should be justly proud. Curiously, any person seeking information on Correios de Portugal (Portuguese Postal Operator) will invariably find out that CTT is “a company whose history tells the history of its country.” It appears that the Port Wine Region was the first geographic region to be regulated in Portugal, in 1756, by order of the Marquis of Pombal. The regulations established at the time aimed to “protect” a product boasting unique features, only achievable in the specific region in question.
