Also known as Sick Call, Viaticum, or Extreme Unction kits, these were once a staple in every Catholic home. They contain everything a priest would need to administer the last rites to the dying: A crucifix, plates, a napkin, absorbent cotton for annointing, a holy water bottle, two candles and insent candleholders, and a spoon. This particular kit dates to the early to mid 20th century and is complete and unused. The cotton, napkin, and candles are still sealed in their original packaging. Sometimes the plates and spoon in these kits are silver; these are specified as “silver finished.” Exterior of the wooden box shows some wear from age but the interior and contents are all like new.
