Description

Antique Holy Oil Receptacle

I am delighted to offer this antique holy oil receptacle with ornate silver metal lid. It used to hold holy oil (Chrism or Sanctum Chrisma?) for anointing candidates for confirmation and holy orders and during various blessings.

The metal lid is surmounted by a trefoil cross decorated on the front and back, at the intersection of the beams, with the "IHS" Christogram. Stamped on the lid and surrounding the cross are sacred monograms or symbols—Alpha and Omega, IHS, the Sacred Heart and a Latin cross with beams filled with laurel leaves. The Alpha and Omega are the first and last letters in the Greek alphabet, symbolizing Jesus' eternal nature. The Christogram IHS is a monogram symbolizing Jesus Christ. The cross with laurel leaves symbolize the resurrection of Christ and the triumph of life over death. All these symbols and monograms taken together clearly identify the dish as a container for consecrated oil.

The dish no longer contains consecrated oil. It was very clean when I acquired it. It measures 3 1/2" high x 2 3/4" round. There are no chips, no fissures, no cracks. The The exposed part of the metal lid has dark even patina but the underside has a lovely silver color (sterling?). In Very Good condition.
