Sick call sets could be found in every early 20th century Catholic home. They came in many shapes and sizes, but all served the same purpose: they provided necessary items for a home visit by the parish priest to administer sacraments to the sick. Sometimes, Holy Communion would be given, but mostly the sets were used to perform Extreme Unction, or Last Rites, the final sacrament given to a dying person.

This particular set contains an exquisite round holy water bottle, black wooden crucifix with silvertone corpus, two silvertone platens marked "IHS," a small silvertone cup, two beeswax candles, a silver plated spoon, a cotton cloth, and instructions for preparing for the sick call. The box itself has a lovely grain with a goldtone latch and cross. Inside, two silvertone candleholders are attached. The whole thing is lined in a liturgical purple. It's not clear if the set was ever used for its intended purpose; the candles have not been burned, but they might be replacements. Everything else, though, seems to be original.

I do combine shipping, but combined cost depends on the type of items you're buying. Please contact me for a combined shipping price. Thanks!
