Most likely dating to the 1950's, this lovely rosary was made by Creed, a renowned name in religious articles and rosary beads. This rosary has faceted Swarovski crystal beads, a sterling medallion medal with a Madonna on the front and what I think is the Sacred Heart of Jesus on the reverse, and a sterling Christ on Crucifix. Both the Madonna and the Crucifix are marked "Creed Sterling". The rosary's overall length is 22"; the Madonna medallion measures just under 1" long and 1/4" wide; the Crucifix is 2" long and 1 1/8" wide. The rosary comes with its original silver mesh pouch with snap closure; the snap has a cross on it. The pouch was most likely made for Creed by Whiting and Davis. The pouch is in well-used condition but still snaps well.
