Crusie moulds

A crusie is a form of oil lamp, often attributed to Scotland but probably of wider provenance. These two stone moulds for making crusie pans are from the island of Islay in the Inner Hebrides (left), and North Uist in the Outer Hebrides.

The stone on the right has an incised cross in addition to the crusie pan matrix.
