This traveling priest’s oil kit was made in London in 1876. Sterling silver containers screw together for ease of transportation; one is engraved CHR for “CHRISM” which is the name of the oil Catholics use for confirmation and other holy orders. Another container, engraved CAT, holds “catechumens” for baptism. A third holy oil, used to bless the sick, is absent.
