Pilgrim's souvenir cake, Palestine, 1875-1930

Impressed with an ear of wheat, this souvenir in the shape of a slice of cake was brought back from a pilgrimage to Jerusalem, then formally part of Palestine. Jerusalem is a holy city for Christians, Jews and Muslims. Pilgrimages are journeys to holy places or shrines. The cake may have been bought because of perceived medicinal and health-giving qualities as well as providing a souvenir of the pilgrimage. It is shown here with three similar examples (A156294, A156295 and A156296).
