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 fantastic vintage icon. It is an image of the Blessed Virgin Mary as she appeared to Juan Diego in Mexico, 1531. The Madonna is shown with her head slightly bowed and her hands clasped in prayer.
This piece has a wooden base while the icon is a print with a heavy silvered metal overlay.
Condition: The hanger is bent. Please see pictures.
This is a beautiful example of mid century religious art. It is an elegant image of the Blessed Virgin Mary holding a young Christ in her arms. The pair are shown nearly cheek to cheek with their beautiful halo overlapping.
We believe this pewter, although there is no makers mark. The metal sculpture is set against a cream colored background in a wooden frame. Unique.
This is a magnificent vintage print. It is the interior of the Church of St. Baron in Ghent, Belgium. The stunning high altar is the focal point with light streaming through upper windows illuminating the statuary and side altars. A man is shown kneeling in prayer in the foreground. Wonderful.
This is a stunning vintage station likely once used in a church. The scene shows Jesus on His knees while Simon the Cyrenian helps lift some of the weight. Behind Simon is a member of the Sanhedrin wearing rich robes and jewels. He is pointing at Simon forcing him to help Our Lord.
The colors of the lithograph are still vibrant particularly Christ’s Halo and red robes.
Please Note: There is no protective glass and the both the frame and lithograph have a few scratches. The most noticeable scratch is along Christ’s hand. The roman numeral for this station is also missing. Please See Pictures.
