Trying to figure out what this church fixture was


#1

In the back of the church was a gold cylindrical box that I initially thought might’ve been the tabernacle. But the tabernacle was behind the altar. This fixture also had a tray for holy water at the bottom. I’m trying to figure out what it was. Only thing I can think of is that it could have held the holy oils.

Like this?

Yeah. Just a little more conical at the top. And I didn’t personally notice a spigot, though it might have been there.


#4

Holy water tank. It’s where you’d get holy water to take home. (Just don’t drink it.)


#5

Thanks.

Ours is EXACTLY like the larger one. And it is pretty heavy even when empty.
