Wonderful early probably Victorian rosary. The necklace part of the rosary measures 24" long with a 4" drop and weighs 20.6 grams. Though the beads look wooden I am not sure what they are composed of. The beads measure approximately 5.75mm X 6mm, and the 7mm Pater beads have a carved rosette design. The links of the rosary are a silver tone metal as is the center medal which measures 1/2" X 1/2" and has Jesus and his Sacred Heart on the front, and Mary with the Baby Jesus on the back. The handmade unusual almost primitive crucifix measures 1 1/4" X 8/16" and is sterling silver (acid tested). In Excellent Victorian condition with very light age appropriate wear.
