Maritime Museum, Roterdam

PostNL (Netherlands) issued a set of stamps on 12th October 2015 on ship models from the Maritime Museum, Rotterdam.

The ship models on the stamps offer a good overview of the different types of ships built over the past seven centuries. The oldest depicted ship is a Spanish freighter from 1425, and the newest is a Dutch construction ship built in 2014. Five of the ship models on the new stamps are part of the new permanent exhibit in the Maritime Museum. The exhibit comprises a total of 25 masterpieces from the museum’s centuries-old collection.
