Barwood Crucifix Last Rites Set

$120.00

Sold

This is a stunning vintage sick call set.  Our Lord is shown with a magnificent halo on an elaborately carved cross.The crucifix opens to reveal a box that contains the items needed for the priest’s visit. This set contains a petite holy water bottle, two unused wax candles and linen. There are two candleholders and a slot for standing the crucifix upright, making this a complete home altar.


Last Rites/Sick Call sets: These boxes are used in Catholic homes to store the items needed by a 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 homes would often have additional items such as cotton for the oil, a linen cloth, a spoon, a plate, rosaries, and prayer books on hand for the sacrament.


The reverse is stamped by the manufacturer but it is difficult to read. This is a Barwood creation, similar to Syroco Wood, both are very early faux wood products, dating to the early 1900’s.
