Vintage Silverplate & Faux Turquoise Bead Rosary!

Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST! May I offer….

AGE: I am guessing but probably C.1960 or so

ITEM: Possibly completely manufactured in Italy, here's a Native American/Southwest Indian style rosary of silverplate beads/findings and featuring faux turquoise nugget beads. All 59 beads are present. in fact, there are 60 in total - there's an extra turquoise nugget at the back of the rosary.

CONDITION: Very nice with a vintage patina. The entire piece seems to be strung on string/thread so a restringing is probably in order sometime soon.

TURQUOISE: I have got to admit that the turquoise does look genuine but my gut tells me that the turquoise is glass - the drill holes are much too large and too cleanly drilled for the nuggets to be genuine turquoise.

METAL CONTENT: Cross and center medal are marked ITALY so metal is silverplate. The pater beads (roses) are not marked but have the look of being silverplate as well.

HALLMARKS: As mentioned above.

SIZE: From bottom of cross to center of back of rosary measures 17-1/2". Cross measures 1-7/8" x 1-1/4". From top of center medal to bottom of cross measures 5-3/4".

WEIGHT: A hefty 48.1 grams

FINAL COMMENTS: Most unusual!
