Beautiful series presenting folk-costumes from all regions of pre-Anschluß Austria. Issued in 1934, shortly after assassination of Austrian chancellor Engelbert Dollfuß in a failed coup attempt by Nazi agents. 

 

Stamps can be purchased in land-specific pairs, or as a full series:

  • Burgenland: "Farmers wife on her way to the market" and "Horse herdsman"
  • Carinthia (Kärnten): "Girl from Glantal" and "Wedding inviter, Lesachtal"
  • Lower Austria (Nieder­österreich): "Girl from Wachau" and "Vintner from Wachau"

Note on the "Costumes" series: only the 18 stamps of this series you see above were originally issued in 1934. The series was later enhanced by 2 more stamps for 3 and 5 Schillings in 1936 - the stamps were not specific to any Land - "Agriculture: reaper & grain binders" and "City labour: construction workers".
