Easton's Bible Dictionary
A utensil; a flask or cup for holding water (1 Samuel 26:11, 12, 16; 1 Kings 19:6) or oil (1 Kings 17:12, 14, 16). In 1 Kings 14:3 the word there so rendered means properly a bottle, as in Jeremiah 19:1, 10, or pitcher. In 2 Kings 2:20, a platter or flat metal saucer is intended. The Hebrew word here used is translated "dish" in 21:13; "pans," in 2 Chronicles 35:13; and "bosom," in Proverbs 19:24; 26:15 (R.V., "dish").
Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary
1. (n.) A cup or dish.

2. (n.) A bottle for holding water, oil, honey, etc.

International Standard Bible Encyclopedia
CRUSE

kroos: A small earthen vessel or flask, usually for holding liquids: tsappachath; as water, 1 Samuel 26:11, 12, 16 1 Kings 19:6; it being porous, the liquid is kept cool; also for holding oil, as in 1 Kings l7:12, 14, 16.

In 1 Kings 14:3 ("a cruse of honey") the word baqbuq, would be better rendered "bottle," doubtless deriving its name from the gurgling sound of issuing liquids. In 2 Kings 2:20 tselochith, is not a jar or flask, but a dish, or platter, for salt or other substances.

In the New Testament a small jar or vial, alabastron, "alabaster cruse" or flask, for holding ointment; not "box" as in the King James Version (Matthew 26:7 Mark 14:3 Luke 7:37; compare 1 Samuel 10:1 2 Kings 9:1, 3, where "box" in the King James Version is used for "vial" the Revised Version (British and American)).
