About Madeira Self-Adhesive Stamps

National Musical Instruments
One of Madeira’s trademarks, the ‘brinquinho’ or ‘bailhinho’ is a handcrafted percussion instrument, used by folk groups to mark the beat and as an accompaniment to singing and music. It is thought to derive from the ‘charola’ or ‘cana de bonecos,’ an instrument used in the Minho and Douro regions in continental Portugal. Dressed in typical costumes, the fabric dolls that form the ‘brinquinho’ (normally seven male and female gures) hold castanets and ribbons. They are arranged at the end of a dista , around two or more uneven circular arches.
