Cruets, with their phoedeliae.

From Wikipedia:

Phoedelia is the ecclesiastical name for one of the stoppers which accompany the cruets used in the liturgical rites of the Anglican and Roman Catholic churches particularly. They are often made of glass and shaped in the form of a cross. They are usually produced in a pair for both the water and wine as elements of the Eucharist.
