A rare rosary made from Trapa Bicornis seed pods, from plants cultivated in the lakes of Majena and Varesa in Italy. With the seeds, chaplets of beads are made in Rome, Varesa, and other European cities. The nuts are considered sacred in Benares, a holy city in India, where Siddartha Gautama, the Supreme Buddah, gave his first sermon. It probably dates to the 19th century, and is in very good overall condition with great patina. This rosary consists of a string of 61 1 ½” wide seed pods with wire connectors and measures 44” long. A great religious collectible!
