In Catholic liturgy, one cruet is used to contain wine and the other water in the celebration of the Eucharist.

Usually made from glass to make it easier to distinguish the contents, these are instead made from metal coated with silver.

These cruets come from the church in Louiseville.

With respect to the artist, François Ranvoyzé (1739-1819), he was a renowned goldsmith from Quebec City.
