C.1910 Art Nouveau FRENCH SILVER & Coral Bead Rosary
Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST! May I offer….
AGE: C.1910 or so
ITEM: A rather fabulous Art Nouveau rosary from France made of coral beads and silver findings. 53 coral beads and 6 silver medallion pater discs (Virgin Mary & Jesus with IHS backs) make up this very fine, very complete religious item.
CONDITION: Very nice with no problems I can spot. All the silver pieces still have great detail with not too much wear; the coral beads are uniform in size with only the odd bead or two having a natural blemish.
METAL CONTENT: Being French, either 800 or 900 silver.
HALLMARKS: One French poincon on the bale of the cross denoting metal content and country of origin; one poincon on the center medal.
SIZE: From back of rosary to bottom of cross measures about 16-3/4" (on a straight line). Cross measures 1-1/4" x 3/4". From top of center medal to bottom of cross measures 5-1/8".
Coral beads measure 3.8mm.
WEIGHT: 10.9 grams
FINAL COMMENTS: Stunning!
