THE WEDDING BREAD.1 CANDLESTICK 5.00€

The wedding breads had a particular significance for the happiness of the couple ”… for a well-fated marriage” and their preparation followed a strict ritual. In many regions of Greece the invitation cards, the gift for the best man and the priest, the treats for the guests and the wedding “bonbonnières” were breads. In other regions the groom offered a bread to the family of the bride in return for taking her away, or they hung a bread in the wedding flag (the flampouro) or the bride tore a bread in her new house to bring happiness to the couple. The wedding breads bear a special decoration with symbols that protect from evil and bring good fortune to the couple, such as pomegranates, snakes, cypresses, grapes, crosses, birds, flower-wreaths… And as the poet describes: They knead - the bride’s flying hands, and shape the first breads with the palms, inside the stone-cut trough – her dowry (by G. Drosinis).Our creation weights 2.5 kilos and it has specially treated to be preserved for long time! It is NOT eatable in this state. Weight 179 gr.
