This is an antique set of religious items. The matching plates are decorated with the “IHS” christogram beautifully engraved in the center and grape leaves along the rims. The spoon handle is embellished with a cross, grapes, and wheat all representing the Eucharist. These pieces would have been stored along with the items needed by the priest to perform the Last Rites.

The reverse is stamped “Sick Call Outfit” “Quadruple Silver Plate, Patented April ‘97” “Special Metal”.

Sick call/ last rites:
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. 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.

Dimensions: Plates - 5.5” in diameter; Spoon - 5.5” long
