Vintage Sick Call Cabinet for Holy Communion

$150.00

Sold

This is a vintage last rites set for home use. It contains all of the items needed to prepare for a priest’s visit: a crucifix, two candle holders, two silver plates engraved with the “IHS”, and a holy water bottle. Each piece is finished in bright silver. Absolutely magnificent.

This set comes in a case lined in purple satin with fitted spots for each piece, including space for two candles. The candle holders are fixed to the case, while the other pieces are removable.

 

Last Rites Sets:

These boxes were once 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. Many sets, though, would have additional items such as cotton for the oil, a linen cloth, a spoon, a plate, and prayer books. Some would store personal keepsakes such as rosaries and holy cards, as well.

 

Condition: There is some remnant wax beneath the candle holders. Please see pictures.

Dimensions: Crucifix - 7" tall; Plates - 5" dia.; Case - 13” long x 8” wide x 3” deep
