Offering for sale a rare and fabulous antique Catholic rosary. This is made of very unusual beads, believed to be a celluloid material, although they could have some amber content, with a most unusual crucifix and center medal. The crucifix appears to be horn as viewed from the back where the color striations are visible. The corpus is probably white plastic or similar material. The Our Father beads are a beautiful blood red shade, matching the very unusual center medal with raised Sacred Heart. This rosary feels wonderful to the touch, and there are no missing beads and no significant damage, only mild wear from age. It is 20 & 3/4" long laid flat, and the crucifix is 2 & 1/8" long.
