Hotel Art Collection – 7th Floor

The Art Story

The 7th floor: First day covers

When a set of new stamps is issued, a First Day Cover (FDC) is released for collectors. The single sheet contains the new stamps accompanied by an original, hand-painted image. Stamp collectors clamor for these special editions and the art holds incomparable value as a signifier of the themes, messages, and subjects the country placed significance on at the time of issuing.

As influenced by European models of FDC production, Vietnam issued many sets of stamps. This collection contains examples dating between 1945 and 1975. The simple color and designs reflect bot h production demands and aesthetic preferences. With subjects ranging from flowers to agriculture animals, national achievements to war propaganda.
