Last Rites Box with Large Crucifix

Last Rites Box with Large Crucifix

$176.00

This is a beautiful antique last rites box. It is comprised of two candle holders and a large crucifix above the box. The door of the box contains a print of The Last Supper on the outside and has “Viaticum” printed on the inside.

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 traditionally held additional items such as cotton for the oil, a linen cloth, a spoon, a plate, and prayer books.

 

Condition: The latch is broken, but it can be easily replaced.

Dimensions: 23.5" tall x 12" wide x 4" deep

Shipping: $15
