This is a magnificent vintage piece for home devotions. A framed lithograph of Jesus pointing to His Sacred Heart 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, two mini plastic bowls, a holy water bottle, a piece of linen, and the original ball of cotton. It appears to have never been used.
This is a unique religious devotional brooch. The center is a petite image of the Blessed Virgin Mary in profile enameled in beautiful bright blue. This medal is framed in pearly lucite on a gold finished background. Gorgeous!
This is a gorgeous vintage rosary. The beads are delicate ovals made of luminous mother of pearl. The centerpiece is hexagonal with an image of the Blessed Virgin Mary in profile. The crucifix is very elegant and includes roses carved into the cross behind the corpus. “France” is printed on the reverse of the crucifix.
This is a beautiful pair of vintage earrings. Both earrings are an image of the Blessed Virgin Mary with a flowing veil under a delicate halo. Each cameo is hand carved and therefore one of a kind. These are screw backed and marked as 1/20 12k gold filled.
