This is a sweet old piece, treasured for decades before it found us. The small metal locket box has the Jesus Sacred Heart image embossed on the lid.
Open the box and you find a miniature rosary...maybe for a child or to be hung from a chatelaine or belt in its box. The rosary and locket box are made of Alpaca, a metal alloy that was widely used in Germany... often called 'German silver'.
The locket box measures 1 inch across by 4 3/4 inches long with chain. The rosary is 9 3/4 inches long. The inside of the box is marked GERMANY. The case shows age appropriate wear but overall, both the case and rosary are in wonderful vintage condition. Circa 1920s.
