Add to album

A crusie is a form of oil lamp, often attributed to Scotland but probably of wider provenance. This wooden crusie bearer, for hanging a crusie on, is from Botriphnie in Banffshire. It dates from the 18th or 19th century.

The crusie bearer consists of a length of wood with two small iron hooks stapled at one end.
