Although the lid is dated 1880, I would say this is from the 1920's because of the thin, plastic celluloid material used to make the beads, cross, and the box. The rosary is 15 inches long, and stung on string. Excellent condition, except that the string is a little dingy from use. The box is what makes this extra special. It measures 2&1/4 by 2&1/4 inches and has an image of the Virgin Mary in the center. There is a short prayer (in English) around her, and "1880". There is a tight, 1/2 inch hairline crack on one side of the lid. but otherwise excellent condition.
