Description

This stamp features a miller, an artisan who transforms grains into flour.

Müller is the German word for miller. This name is one of the most common surnames in Luxembourg. This was also one of the most common jobs. In 1900, Luxembourg had 250 mills for the production of flour. After the Second World War, smaller mills began to disappear.
