Huia - 1898 Pictorial Stamp Necklace

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

Almost always seen in pairs, the huia is one of New Zealand’s best-known extinct birds because of its sheer beauty and special place in Māori culture. Illustrated here in one of the world’s earliest pictorial stamps from 1898. New Zealand was one of the first countries in the world to put pictures of the countryside, birds, and animals on its stamps. These stamps became known as pictorials.  

Little Taonga means treasure or prized possession in Māori culture. Each design captures a little something to be treasured - the places, nature, and icons that make Aotearoa New Zealand so special. 

The necklace comes packaged in a fabric slip case.
