March Skipper, if you are interested in tall ships on stamps can I suggest that you seek out the set of 15 issued by the Falkland Islands, I think in the 1980's or 1990's. My sister brought them back for me after living there for a year, and I mounted them in a frame and put them on the wall. They are:-

1p -Padua
2p - Priwall
3p - Passat
4p - Archibald Russell
5p - Pamir
6p - Mozart
7p - Pommern
8p - Preussen
9p - Fennia
10p - Cassard
20p - Lawhill
25p - Garthpool
50p - Grace Harwar
1 - Criccieth Castle
3 - Cutty Sark

Because of the individual size there's little point me photographing them as a mounted set, all detail would be lost, but I'm sure you could track them down on a philatelic website.
Regards

Who would have thought, SN leading me to google stamp collections?

Think your collection was issued in 1989, Cape Horn Sailing Ships.

What a kind and thoughtful present from your sister (Thumb)

I'm sure they look great on your wall.
