SESCAL 2002 - Ming Dynasty Pottery 4.10.2002
This lovely stamp which is one of four issued by Taiwan to commemorate SESCAL 2002, the 58th annual Stamp Exhibition of Southern California, sponsored by the Federated Philatelic Clubs of Southern California, was held on Friday-Sunday, Oct. 4-6, at the Radisson Los Angeles Airport Hotel, 6225 W. Century Blvd., Los Angeles.
The stamp shows Porcelain pottery from the Ming Dynasty in China. During the 18th century, the Chinese ceramics industry, which was once again under stringent imperial control, was noted for the perfection of its porcelain bodies and for the development of new techniques for their decoration.
