Vintage Sterling, Red Glass, & Rhinestone Rosary Modernistic
This is the most unusual rosary I have seen. It is made of sterling metal and has both red glass beads and pink rhinestone beads. The crucifix has a very a modernistic design, it is very smooth and has clean lines. The back is marked "ANTAYA STERLING" & "RITA CICHOWLAS".
At the center of the rosary is Mary with the infant Jesus. On the back of this piece is Jesus, and it is marked "STERLING CHAPEL". The rhinestone beads have all prong set pink rhinestones. The metal on these beads look to be brass. Three of the rhinestone beads have missing rhinestones.
The rosary measures approx. 30 inches (from the sterling piece with Mary back). The crucifix plus the beads that hang it from center piece measures approx. 7 inches. Just the crucifix measures 2.25 inches long x 1 11/16 inches wide. The rhinestone beads measure approx. 1/4 inch and the red beads are just a tiny bit smaller. The center piece measures approx. 3/4 inch.The glass beads show a very small amount of wear.
