Macedonian Bread Stamp
This is a vintage hand carved bread stamp procured from the monks in Macedonia, Greece. These stamps were used for the preparations of sacred Altar bread. It has the design on only one side and is used today by the monks. Each section of the stamp has a specific meaning, and the divisions in the stamp help the priest divide up the bread among the congregation.
