This vintage Last Rites/sick call cross is such an interesting find! Made to hang on a wall until the time when a priest must be called to attend to the sick and dying. Hidden inside the cross are all the tools needed for the sacrament- candles, cotton, and a bottle to hold Holy Water. A very nice piece with some age and wear, but so much history! Please read description, details and condition below and view and zoom in on all photos.

All of the vintage and retro items I offer have been carefully hand selected by me for their uniqueness, quality, or kitschiness. Many of these items have had previous lives and because of their age may show age-related wear such as stains, crazing, or minor chips that do not detract from the quality or character of the item. As many items are hand painted and hand glazed, there may also be minor paint or glaze imperfections present. I do my best to highlight any imperfections or damage in my listings either through descriptions or pictures. Please carefully review the pictures to get a clear idea of the condition of the item.
