Bold Vintage Sterling & Crystal Rosary – Ecce Homo Center – Unusual Crucifix – 55 Grams
This sparkling Jesus-centric rosary combines sparkling, clear faceted beads large and boldly designed sterling components making it suitable for a man or woman. The beads are in excellent vintage condition with occasional and incidental fleabites that do not detract from the natural beauty of the crystal. The paters are adorned with two laced bead caps that echo the sturdy rolo chain between the decades.
At the center is a beautiful Ecce Homo, face of Jesus, wonderfully cast on a large, sterling silver medal. There are gentle luster cuts along the edges of the drape that would really stand out with a little bit of buffing.
Of special note is the fantastic squared sterling crucifix with a most unusual full-mold corpus. Christ's knees are bent to the side; His torso is twisted, and His arms are elongated from the weight of His body. V-shaped luster cuts accent the tips and center of the underlying cross and a thick INRI plaque adorns the top.
Although the crucifix and center medal share size and design characteristics, they have different hallmarks. My guess is the crucifix is not original to the rosary, but it coordinates beautifully and is likely a personalization for the former owner. The medal is marked "Afco Sterling" and the crucifix is Marked "OTC Sterling, Italy." Both versos are blank and ready for your personalization.
This is a one-of-a-kind vintage Catholic rosary whose unique styling is waiting for a unique person to put it back to work. Its large size and nice weight guarantee an interactive prayer experience inspired by its beauty. Comes boxed and ready for gift-giving.
