C.1950 Plastic Rosary Container with Stanhope & Glass Bead Rosary
Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST! May I offer….
AGE: C.1950 or so for the Rosary Holder - C. 1940 or so for the rosary.
ITEM: A hard plastic rosary holder featuring a depiction of the Virgin Mary (in gold) to the front along with a pierced floral design AND a stanhope of The Lord's Prayer at the top. Open the lid to reveal the Sacred Heart of Mary symbols (also on the bottom of the holder). On the inside is a very old glass bead rosary, adult sized, with gold tone metal findings. The rosary does show its age and some of the "pearl" colored beads are showing mostly clear glass.

METAL CONTENT: Gold tone metal
