Door knockers on stamps

Looking for a new topical theme to collect? How about door knockers?

Malta will issue four new stamps March 5, 2008 featuring door knockers or "Habbatas" as they are called in the archipelago nation located in the Mediterranean.

"Found with numerous motifs, shapes and sizes they often reflects the personality and taste of the house owner. Buildings throughout the Maltese Islands can boast of some exceptionally fine examples which qualify as veritable works of art," according to a post on the Malta Post website.

The four examples chosen for the stamps are found on the doors of the Ministry of Finance; the Museum of Fine Arts; the Department of Industrial and Employment Relations; and the Museum of Archaeology.
