Found this at an estate sale. Not sure all the contents are complete. This is amazing, can't imagine the history that goes with it.

    Hi, amazing condition! Yes, it looks very complete! It might be missing the strands/coils of cotton batting that were inside the two boxes with the silver grommets. It is also missing a gold-tone (brass, I think) cross that would have been affixed to the center of the exterior of the lid. Are the prayers entirely in Latin? This box most probably will have been blessed. Exterior of lid looks like it might have some moisture-related damage - see white spot? I'm sure that something could be done to remedy that. Wonderful condition. miKKo
