World War Two Handmade Stamp Corsage Savings Stamps Folk Art
Folk art handmade corsage. Defense postal savings stamps were issued in 1941 featuring the statue of "Minuteman" by David French which stands in Concord, MA. The ten cent stamps were redeemable for War Bonds issued by the Treasury. This handmade corsage is made of nine stamps (each ten cents) with red, white and blue leaves cut from paper and string stamens. Originally, corsages were thought to ward off evil. These did…they raised funds to fight Hitler.
