Traditional Pottery stamps from Tunisia

The Tunisian Post has issued a set of four stamps dedicated to the traditional Tunisian pottery. The Tunisian pottery products are widely used in Tunisia and help to raise awareness about the richness of Tunisian craft as component of Tunisian tourism.

The stamps depict the following pottery products:

- "Maajna" plate: this handcrafted pottery item was modeled in the second third of the 20th century. It is primarily produced in the city of Sejnane (Governorate of Bizerte), and is used to serve meals.

- "Charbiya" jug: a product of pottery known in the Governorate of Nabeul, decorated with white, blue, orange and black colors.

- "Borniya" jar: this is a handcrafted pottery item modeled in the second third of the 20th century, decorated with green and yellow colors. It is especially used in the town of Nabeul for the conservation of olive oil.

- "Quallaline" large container: it is a model of contemporary pottery, inspired by the Quallaline workshops (Tunis). The main colors are brown, green, yellow and white.
