International Letter Writing Week 2007 Commemorative stamps

 Issue Date : 2007-10-08
 Perforation : n/a
 Denomination : 3 Baht (4 Designs)
 Details : Design1 - Betel nut scissors: These are apart of the betel nut set that people in the olden days carried with them when they went out. The scissors are made of iron but the decorative metal has to match with that of other utensils in the betel nut set. For example, in a silver betel nut set, a thin sheet of silver fashioned into the required decorative design is used to cover both blades and in a gold nielloware set, a gold sheet is used to cover both blades. The ends of the scissors's handles are usually decorated with a swan or a "hongsa".

Design2 - Betel nut masher: This is used for grinding the betel nut ingredients so that the elderly, whose teeth are not sufficiently strong, can chew the ground betel nut mixture. This utensil consists of an iron or brass cylindrical tube whose bottom end is plugged with a wooden pestle that serves as a stopper. An appropriate amount of betel nut and piper betel leaves is chopped and put into the cylinder and then pround with the metal rod until they are finely ground. Then, the pestle is pushed forward to force the mixture along the cylinder to the open end.

Design3 - Cylinder-and-piston igniter: It functions by pushing the plunger hard into the body of the syringe and pulling it put at speed. A flame will be ignited and light the dried fibrous roots of a turf palm attached at the end of the syringe. The ignited flame will be sufficient for lighting cigarettes or for using as fuel o start a fire for cooking.

Design4 - Earthenware oil-lamp/incense dish: These are small, clay receptacles for oil, used for lighting in place. They are similar to bowls but are shallower.
