Our History

Our family has been a part of the philatelic world for three generations.  Elias Kawar I was  an avid stamp collector with a deep appreciation for history in the early 1900's. His interest sparked a torch that  has been carried on by three generations of the Kawar family. His son, grandson, and great-grandson  have all followed in in his footsteps building businesses in philately and postal history.
