An Ambry is essentially a cabinet that holds the Roman Catholic Holy Oils while they are not in use. This ambry was custom designed for St. Bernard’s Catholic Church in Tariffville, Connecticut. It is constructed of solid mahogany with glass panels and shelves. The frames are joined with help-lap joinery for strength and the hinges are fully mortised. The finish is clear satin lacquer.
