Vintage Last Rites / Sick Call Set

$280.00

This is a very rare vintage last rites set for home use. The face of the crucifix is detailed with mother-of-pearl inlay, and the words “Ecce Homo” are written at the base. The candlesticks both have “Pax” written on the base. All the pieces have a bright silver finish.

This set comes with everything needed for a priest to perform the last rites sacrament, as well as some extra items not commonly found with such sets:

- Crucifix 
- Candlesticks 
- Candles 
- Cotton 
- 3 linens 
- Egg-shaped cup for water for the ill to sip after communion 
- Holy water container 
- Container for cotton 
- Cobalt blue votive candle holder to light when meeting the priest at the door 
- Tray 
- Book of directions explaining how to prepare for the priest’s visit

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 homes would traditionally have additional items such as cotton for the oil, a linen cloth, a spoon, a plate, and prayer books. This set is very unusual and very beautiful.

 

Dimensions: Crucifix - 12" tall x 6" wide; Candlesticks - 3.5" tall x 3" wide; Tray - 14.5" wide x 11" deep
