Rosary Box Case of Lourdes Blessed Mother
Actually, I'm not sure if this is Lady of Lourdes or Mary of Guadalupe. Both were apparitions appeared before witnesses. Lady of Lourdes in France, who visited Bernadette , and Mary of Guadalupe who was witnessed by Don Diego. Both apparitions of the Blessed Mother Mary.
A female is kneeling before the Holy Mother, but the Blessed Mother also has stripes around her as pictured in the Mary of Guadalupe. Either way, it is the Blessed Mother.
This was sold to me as Sterling silver. But when I got home I couldn't find a mark, so I purchased a testing kit and it is at least "800" which was usually used in Europe. Mexico is known for their sterling but it is usually marked. The other two, I purchased with this one also turned out to be 800 rather than sterling. Always take a loop and look when someone tells you they are sterling!! The others were marked "800".
In great shape and with fine detail, it is a lovely, small Rosary case. Made for older Rosaries which use to be quite a bit smaller than the large beaded Rosaries of today.
It is in excellent condition with no dents. It doesn't seem it has been used as much as the other two I purchased. Very nice detailing
The silver box is 1 1/2" X 1 3/16th of an inch. It is getting quite difficult to find these little treasures.
