Description:In the next week or so I will be listing severallargeplaster religious pieces, all from the same estate. Also out of this estate comes this antique sick call box and contents that was meant to sit within a wall. The shadowbox-type piece is oak, I believe, and it houses a chalkware version of the Pieta behind reverse painted glass. The compartment with the drop down door opens to a compartment that would normally hold all the items needed to administer Last Rites. It seems the family had begun using it simply to tuck away some of their religious items. Inside the box were found a miniature leather bound Bible; a sueded leather pouch which held numerous religious/saint medals; several older holy cards; a scapular and a folded palm. On either side of the compartment are brass fixtures in the shape of angels. These were meant to secure candleholders (which are missing).
Condition:Nice older condition. As stated, the candleholders were not found with the box. I believe the compartment front at one time had a glass cover but this is missing as well.
Height:22 3/4"" Width:13" Depth: About 4 1/4"
Weight (unpacked):6 lbs., 6

Please ask any and all questions before offerding. Please contact us through the mail system ONLY. We do our best to describe items thoroughly, frequently consulting experts with whom I work. However, you may know or want to know something we haven't thought of. We inspect our items thoroughly and twice over, acknowledging any and all defects or flaws in the listing details. We do not accept returns or provide refunds unless I have grossly erred in describing the item which you have purchased. All fragile items are securely wrapped in bubble wrap and packing peanuts. Refunds for an item that arrives damaged or broken due to shipping will not be considered for a refund unless the item is in its original, unopened wrapping. Keep in mind that nearly all our items are antiques or vintage and, as such, are pre-owned.
