Beautiful old rosary, with dark iridescent glass beads, sort of a near black carnival glass with shades ranging from darkest deep blue or black to coppery tones, very lovely and they change depending on the ambient lighting. The center is a lovely image of the Virgin Mary in Miraculous or Our Lady stance, and it is a slider medal center with the Sorrowful, Joyful, & glorious Mysteries with days of the week to say them. The crucifix is also very lovely and unusual, of a silver tone metal with gold tone metal corpus, very very nice. The center medal is marked Italy, and it also is in the combination of metals colors. The rosary is in good condition with no missing beads, there are tiny flea bites (very tiny chips) on a lot of the faceted edges of the beads, which would be expected of this type of beads and years of use. the beads are very comfortable to use. The crucifix measures 2 & 1/8" long, the center slider medal is 7/8" tall, and the rosary is 20" long laid flat. One of the loveliest rosary we have had in glass beads.
