Vintage Holy Land/European 800/900 SILVER & Mother of Pearl Rosary
Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST! May I offer for your consideration....
AGE: C.1920/1930 or so
ITEM: A silver and mother of pearl rosary that I believe came from the Middle East - possibly the Holy Land itself. And if I'm wrong, then it may just be from France. The MOP beads are irregularly cut - the Paters being bigger than the rest of the beads. Definitely handmade.
CONDITION: Very nice with a mellow patina to the silver.
METAL CONTENT: 800 or 900 silver
HALLMARKS: None that I can spot. Metal has been acid tested for content and although silver, the exact content in indeterminate.
SIZE: Length from back of the piece to bottom of the cross measures 16-1/4". Cross alone measures 1-1/2" x 15/16". Measurement from top of center medal to bottom of cross is 5-1/2".
WEIGHT: 31 grams
FINAL COMMENTS: All 59 beads are present - silver patina is mellow. What more could you want from a vintage rosary!
