Mould - SMC125
cross mould, of unknown date, was found concealed in an alcove
of St Magnus Cathedral. It was probably used to make lead
crosses for pilgrims to the shrine of St Magnus.
A depiction of a cross produced from the mould can be seen
in Crear McCartney's great west window of St Magnus Cathedral.
During the mid-twentieth century a silver copy of the St Magnus
Cross was produced in Birmingham for William Hourston, Jewellers,
Albert Street, Kirkwall.
