C.1910 Art Nouveau FRENCH SILVER & Coral Bead Rosary
Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST! May I offer....
AGE: C.1910 or so
ITEM: A simple Art Nouveau rosary from France made of coral beads and silver findings. 57 beads to the rosary (2 missing, I think), very plain cross and the Virgin Mary on the center medal.
CONDITION: Very nice although the findings, center medal and cross are dark with tarnish. A polish will bring up a high shine.
METAL CONTENT: Being French, either 800 or 900 silver.
HALLMARKS: Two French poinconnes on the bale of the cross denoting metal content and country of origin; one poinconne on the center medal. AP on the right side of the center medal (maker's initials).
SIZE: From back of rosary to bottom of cross measures about 13". Cross measures 1-1/2" x 3/4". From top of center medal to bottom of cross measures 4-5/8".
Coral beads measure 3.5mm.
WEIGHT: 8.2 grams
FINAL COMMENTS: Leave as is or repurpose into another design. Oh, and if I am reminded, I think I might have 2 coral beads to fill in for the missing ones.
