    Sold

    Sold

    This is a magnificent vintage piece for home devotions. A framed lithograph of Warner Sallman’s famous “Head of Christ” painting is mounted in a fixed frame that doubles as the cover of the sick call set. The box is designed to be hung on a wall until needed and then removed to create the altar for a priest’s home visit.

    These boxes were used in Catholic homes to store the items needed by the priest for the anointing of the sick and for extreme unction. The only items necessary for these rites are a crucifix, blessed candles, and holy water. However, many sets would traditionally hold additional items such as cotton for the oil, a linen cloth, a spoon, a plate, and prayer books.

    This set comes with two unused candles, a spoon, two mini glass bowls, and the original ball of cotton. It is dated 1941 in the lower left corner and appears to have never been used.

     

    Condition: There are linen remnants stuck to the crucifix and inside the box. It must have disintegrated, leaving only the fibers. Presumably, this could be easily removed. Please see pictures.

    Dimensions: 11.5" tall x 9.5" wide x 2" deep

  • Antique Last Rites Shadowbox with Pieta - The Vintage Catholic

    Antique Last Rites Shadowbox with Pieta

    $270.00

    This is an antique devotional shadowbox meant to hold the items a priest needs to perform the last rites. Traditionally, a Catholic home would have these items at hand in preparation for the priest’s visit. The focal point of this box is a vibrantly painted statue of the pieta: the Sorrowful Mother cradling the body of Jesus. The glass protecting the pieta is painted in vibrant greens, blues, and pinks. The framing depicts two angels and a cross painted along the top, and the words "Blessed Be Thy Holy Name" painted along the bottom.

    The lower door includes a painting of the Last Supper and opens to reveal the items used in the last rites sacrament: a crucifix, blessed candles, and holy water. Many non-essential items would have tradionally been stored here, as well (cloths, cups, bowls, plates, a spoon, holy cards, rosaries, etc.). On the reverse side of the door is written the word "Viaticum", which means "provisions for the journey", with two attached candle holders. The solid oak cabinet is designed to be set into a wall so that is lays flush like a painting. It is sturdy and in excellent condition.
