Carnival Order for Bread?

Köln Karnevalsorden copy

I was really surprised and delighted when Moira, on of our bakers, showed me her husbands grandmother’s carnival order from 1954. The inscription says ‘Fidele Brezelbrüder Köln-Land’ which may translate into something like ‘The Joyous Pretzel Brothers from outer Cologne’.

Carnival officially finishes on Shrove Tuesday. So it is this time of the year.
