Last Rites Box with 1960s Modern Crucifix

$116.00

This is a rare vintage sick call set with a 1960s modern design. The crucifix is extremely simple, and Christ looks emaciated. The lid opens to reveal a small container with unused candles, a plastic holy water container, and a ball of cotton.

These boxes were 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 sets often held additional items such as cotton for the oil, a linen cloth, a spoon, a plate, and prayer books. Some would store personal keepsakes such as rosaries and holy cards, as well.
