Welcome

This website is dedicated to the Belgian illustrated telegrams. In the sixty years that these telegrams were issued, 33 different telegram designs were used. Most telegrams exist in (combinations of) all the three official languages of Belgian.

Information on the Belgian illustrated telegrams is difficult to find. This website tries to fill the information gap. On the telegrams page we present the different telegrams and provide a short description of the designers, as far as information could be found on the internet. On the inventory page we go into more detail and list also the major and minor differences caused by reprints, as far as we are aware of.

We are continuously improving the listings and updating this website. Therefore, questions, remarks, suggestions for improvement et cetera are very welcome. We are especially interested in new findings, which will be incorporated in the listings. A printable version of this website is available upon request.

We hope you will enjoy your stay at our telegram-website.

Introduction

Although Belgian illustrated telegrams are offered on many auction sites, it is very difficult to find some information on the internet on the history and the design of these telegrams. The most detailed information is found on the website of Ludo Thomassetti. He writes:

'In March 1924 the "National Work for the Wellbeing of Children" proposed to set up a service for luxury telegrams in Belgium, following Sweden and Switzerland. On 21 July 1925 the first Telegram on a luxury form was distributed. ... The telegrams knew a big interest and had their peak in the years 1948-1956. In 1983 there was almost no interest from the public ... The telegram was abolished on 1 May 1984. ...'


xxx Dutch
xxx French
xxx Dutch/French
xxx German

Also information in print is scarse and difficult to find. A very detailed study by Walter Kerckhofs was published between 1994 and 1997 in the montly of 'Filatelie aan de Rijn'.¹ He presented a classification of the illustrated telegrams of Belgium. The classification presented here, is that classification, supplemented with new findings and some more detail.

Altogether there have been 33 different (large format) illustrated telegrams. Most of them are numbered, some are not. The telegrams were available in several languages and combinations of languages. This is because there are three official languages in Belgium: Dutch (or Flemish), which is spoken in the north of Belgium, French which is spoken in the south, and German, that is spoken in a small area along the German border. In Brussels, the capital of Belgium, both French and Dutch are used. One can find telegrams in French and in Dutch, and in the combinations French/Dutch and French/German.

As most telegrams have been available for a very long time, there is a wide variety in the layout and typography. Acually, there are that many variations that an exhaustive classification that takes care of all minor differences hardly exists. Walter Kerckhofs distinguishes seven main layouts (A to F) called series, based on the most striking elements of the telegrams. These elements are:

  1. Identification number. Most telegrams, but not all, have an identification number at the bottom of the telegram. This number exists of three parts: a character indicating the type of the telegram, a number that coincides with the illustration and one or more letters indicating the languages used on the telegram. The last is not always present.
  2. Header. The name and/or the logo of the company.
  3. Sender line. A sender line with fields for the sending office, a sequence number for administrative purposes, the number of words on the telegram and the date and time of sending.
  4. Printer's mark. This is sometimes found at the bottom of the telegram, especially on the later ones.

Identification number

At the bottom of most telegrams one can find a number. This number generally consists of three parts. The first part is a character A, B or C. The character A is used on telegrams for happy events, B is used on congratulation telegrams and C is used on mourning telegrams. The second part is a number between 1 and 33. Each number coincides with a different design. The third part is an abbreviation for the language(s) used on the telegram. Sometimes, the identification number is completely missing (series A and B, see below). Sometimes, the language indicator part is missing (series C and G).

French headers

1. ADMINISTRATION DES TÉlÉGRAPHES & DES TÉLÉPHONES
2. RÉGIE DES TÉLÉGRAPHES ET TÉLÉPHONES
3. RÉGIE DES TÉLÉGRAPHES & TÉLÉPHONES
4. RÉGIE DES TÉLÉGRAPHES ET DES TÉLÉPHONES

Dutch headers

1. BEHEER VAN TELEGRAFEN EN TELEFONEN
2. REGIE VAN TELEGRAAF EN TELEFOON
3. REGIE VAN TELEGRAFIE EN TELEFONIE

German headers

1. TELEGRAFEN UND FERNSPRECHVERWALTUNG
2. REGIE VON TELEGRAPH UND TELEPHON
3. TELEGRAPHEN- UND TELEPHONREGIE
4. TELEGRAPHEN- UND FERNSPRECHREGIE

Header

The oldest telegrams only have the name of the company on top of the telegram. Later the coat of arms of Belgium is added. In 1960 the coat of arms is replaced by the logo of the company (series F). Since 1966 the name of the company has disappeared (series G). The name of the company has not been constant over time. The box right lists all headers used.

Sender line

Except for the most recent telegrams, those with a large logo and no company name (series G), all telegrams have a section for administrative data. This part had te be completed by the officer of the sending office and consists of fields for the place of the sending office, a sequence number for administrative purposes, the number of words of the message and the date and time of sending. Like the header, the wording of the sender line has changed over time. In French the line can start with DÉPOSÉ À, Déposé à (both sometimes without an accent on the a) or Bureau d'origine; the Dutch line with AFGEGEVEN TE, Afgegeven te, Kantoor van afzending or Kantoor van herkomst; and the German line with AUFGELIEFERT IN or Aufgabeamt.

Printing houses

During the sixty years that the illustrated telegrams were issued by the Belgian Telegraph and Telephone Company (RTT), they were printed at several printing houses: J.E. Goossens, Vanmelle, Vandezande and Leempoel. On part of the telegrams their names are printed at the bottom of the telegram, sometimes preceded or followed by a number.

The box below lists all combinations of variations in the identifications numbers, headers, administration lines and printer's marks seen or reported thus far. This includes series D4, mentioned by Kerckhofs, of which we haven't seen a copy yet.

Only two different French headers are distinguished. The small differences between the French headers, nrs 2, 3 and 4 in the box above are not taken into account. The same is true for the Dutch headers headers nrs 2 and 3 and the German headers 2, 3 and 4. A table with all currently known combinations per telegram can be found on the inventory page (see menu above or buttons below).

Minor differences

As most telegrams have been available for quite a long time, there were many reprints of the same main layout. Besides the differences mentioned above, there are lots of minor differences to be distinguished. For example, the distances between the various elements on the telegram sometimes differ, the spacing of headers and the sender lines differ, the sizes of the subsequent editions of the same telegram sometimes differ, the telegram number is mostly placed bottom left, but sometimes you will find it at bottom right, et cetera.

Scans and inventory

On the telegrams page we show scans of the main series of all telegrams. If we could find information on the internet, we also give a short biography of the artist or designer of the telegram. On the inventory page we present a detailed list of all different telegrams we could distinguish: the main series plus minor differences. The minor differences are indicated by subnumbers, for example I, II, III et cetera, eventually followed by sub-subnumbers.

¹ Between 1994 and 1997, a detailed study by Walter Kerckhofs was published in 'Filatelie aan de Rijn': 1994(6) p17-30, 1994(8) p20-24, 1995(2) p25-28, 1995(4) p3-8, 1995(7) p5-26, 1995(9) p21-35, 1996(2) p20-26, 1996(4) p23-36, 1996(6) p39-48, 1996(9) p28-38 and 1997(1) p6-19.

Hubert van Eyck (ca 1366 - 1426) and Jan van Eyck (before 1395 - before 9 July 1441)

Hubert van Eyck was the eldest of the painters family Van Eyck. Neither the date nor the place of birth are documented. The same is true for his brother Jan van Eyck. It is generally assumed that they were born in Maaseik (Belgium), Hubert around 1366 and Jan in 1395 at the latest. From early documents it is known that in 1422 Jan van Eyck was a respected painter, working in The Hague (Netherlands) for John of Bavaria, count of Holland.

Following the death of John of Bavaria, in 1425, van Eyck entered the service of the powerful and influential Valois prince, Duke Philip the Good of Burgundy. He resided in Lille for a year and then moved to Bruges.

The Van Eyck brother's most famous work is 'Het Lam Gods' (The Lamb of God). This work was started circa 1420 by Hubert and finished in 1432 by Jan after the death of his brother on 18 August or 18 September 1426. Part of the second panel top left is used as the illustration of the telegram.

Detailed inventory

Most telegrams have been available for many years and there have often been many reprints. Sometimes it is possible to distinguish between reprints. This is, for example, the case when font types differ or when similar elements are printed in different colors. An example of the latter is on telegram 7 where the telegram number is sometimes printed in brown, and sometimes in gold.

Other differences are variations in the distances between for example subsequent message lines, or between the telegram number at the bottom and the separator or the administration lines. It should be noted that for variations in distances, only different distances between elements in the same colour count. The telegrams were printed in subsequent runs, one run for each colour. This has lead to variations in the distances between elements in different colours due to imprecise printing. Color shifts up to five milimeters are quite common.

The distance between elements on the telegrams can be measured in three ways. One can measure the direct distance more or less diagonally over the telegram. But one can also measure distances horizontally or vertically. All three types of measurement are used below.

The inventory below is the result of checking and comparing thousands of telegrams, mainly by Erik Verbeeck. And although many variations (or reprints) were idenitified, new discoveries are very likely. Our aim is to arrive at a comprehesive list as posible. If you think you can add to this inventory, please contact us.
