This is a beautiful milk glass crystal beads Roman Catholic Rosary, made by my late aunt in the 1970's as fundraiser items to benefit the Catholic School I went to as a child.
She became disabled and could not serve her church as she had done for years so another lady teach her how to make Rosaries and she made beautiful pieces.
The ladies of our family had kept a few but there were other left which we will list this week.
This one is 23" long with a gorgeous design Crucifix that is 3" long. it is very ornate, in each side it has the four Great Churches of Rome and it is marked with the word; 'ITALY' on the back. The center medal is The Sacred Heart of Jesus on one side and on the other the Holy Virgin of Mercy. The milk glass white crystal beads are beautiful , they have like a small section where it glows and shows a salmon color, very unusual and really pretty, The beads are like an octagonal shape and they are all crystals, the chain is of a silver tone. It is a very beautiful Rosary, from our own family estate inventory.
