Tiny Sterling Rosary with Art Nouveau Centerpiece
The little 13/16" x 9/16" Crucifix has an INRI banner across the top. It is marked on the back with a maker's mark that looks like BB Co. above Sterling. The Art Nouveau centerpiece has a fine small image of Mary in profile on one side and IHS on the reverse.
It measures 11-3/4" long. The beads are tiny and fine. The largest seem to measure about 1/8" in diameter while the smaller are about half that size. Dime in photo for size comparison.
The rosary is almost black with oxidation. The tarnish is even and there appear to be no pits. I have lightly cleaned only the high areas on the crucifix and centerpiece so that they would show up in the photographs. The beads are really too fine to rub with silver polish.
