Vintage FRENCH Silverplate Rosary Container with Child-Sized Rosary
Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST! May I offer….
AGE: C.1940 or so
ITEM: From France, here's a silverplate (silver colored metal) rosary container - rosary holder, holding a small child-sized rosary that, I believe, is MUCH older than the container itself! The holder features a depiction of the Virgin Mary in the Mater Delorosa (Our Lady of Sorrows) style; lid opens easily and closes with a SNAP! The holder also has a bale/jump ring so that it can be worn on a chain or charm bracelet.
The rosary is made of white and red glass beads with bronze-colored findings.
CONDITION: Very nice with a vintage patina to both pieces. The bottom of the holder has a bit of scruffling but nothing major - might polish out but I will leave this to the new owner.
METAL CONTENT: Silverplate - silver tone metal - bronze colored metal - glass beads
HALLMARKS: None that I can spot.
SIZE: Holder measures 1-1/8" high/wide and has a depth of about 3/8". Rosary measures 6-3/8" (on a straight line) from back to bottom of cross.
WEIGHT: 5.2 grams for the container; 1.6 grams for the rosary.
FINAL COMMENTS: Ready for a new home!
