Monaco: Bach-Handel

Monaco issued a set of 4 stamps honoring authors and composers in 1985 (Scott 1496-1499).  The first honored Sacha Guitry; the second the Brothers Grimm; the third Chopin and Schumann; and the last Bach and Handel. Their stamp includes a set of pipes nestled into fan vaulting from a ceiling. The pipes are not seemingly intended to be a specific instrument.
