Small Soapstone Vessels
Small Soapstone Vessels from Fleur de Lys.
Soapstone vessels were used as lamps and cooking pots. Lamps were generally used for lighting purposes or for heating suspended cooking pots. Cooking pots were used for cooking meals and were either suspended over an open fire or soapstone lamp or placed directly into an open fire.
