New Zealand 1900 1d crimson variety, SG274var

A very fine used pair with large part "CHELTENHAM" circular date stamp.
A scarce variety, particularly so as a multiple.
An attractive pictorial stamp issue depicting the stunning White Terrace, Rotomahana also known as "the fountain of the clouded sky".
The White Terraces were formed over thousands of years by a geyser, which had played over the mountain slope leaving deposits of silica. They were a world famous tourist attraction by 1886, when the eruption of nearby Mount Tarawera completely obliterated them. All that remains are sketches, paintings and these wonderful stamps.
