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 beautiful print depicting The Last Supper after Leonardo da Vinci. Christ is shown at the center with a magnificent halo as He reveals the miracle of the Eucharist. The Apostles are seated to either side talking amongst themselves in alarm. The print is vibrant and full of energy.
This is a stunning portrait of Christ. Our Lord is shown giving a benediction with one hand while pointing to His Sacred Heart with the other. This is a highly detailed piece: Christ’s Sacred Heart radiates light while wrapped in thorns and topped in a flaming cross. The wounds of the Passion can be seen in His hands as gazes out with an expression of profound love. It is very moving.
Condition: The frame has some scratches to be expected with age. Please See Pictures.
This is a striking vintage madonna. The Blessed Virgin Mary is shown as a young woman wearing a beautiful veil framing her face with many soft folds. Our lady is elegantly poised with her head slightly bowed, her eyes lowered, and her palms together in adoration.
This piece is ceramic painted to look like wood. There reverse has the original tag indicating that was handmade in Germany.
This is a wonderful vintage devotional piece. It is an image of a young Virgin Mary. Our lady is gracefully poised with her head slightly bowed and her palms together in prayer. Interestingly, she is shown veiled with her hair in a long braid and decorative polka dots on her gown! Absolutely charming.
Condition: There are a few small scratches in the wood. Please See Pictures.
