Vintage Retro Modern Mid Century Modernist Clear Crystal Sterling Silver Rosary by Creed
Dating to the 1940s/1950s may I offer this faceted clear crystal glass bead rosary with sterling silver findings. The center medal is of Mary (profile facing right) while the reverse is Sacred Heart of Jesus. The paters of this rosary are silver capped; all 59 beads are present. The manufacturer is Creed - the number one name in vintage religious items.
Condition: Very nice with a dark patina to the silver; most of the beads are mellow due to the silver on the underside having tarnished. Both the center medal and corpus on the cross are well defined, this rosary has not been fingered much. Beautiful vintage patina to the piece!
Metal Content: Sterling Silver findings and wire.
Hallmarks: STERLING CREED at the back of the cross.
Size: Entire length is 22" on a straight line. The cross measures 1-3/4" x 1-1/8". From top of center medal to bottom of cross measures 6-1/2". All 59 beads are present.
Weight: 39 grams.
Final Comments: A wonderful vintage religious piece.
