This sweet vintage Catholic rosary has a subtle charm that will slowly draw you in. The plump round beads are a gentle, pale grape color with tiny air bubbles within. All original and in excellent condition, they are very soothing and inspire quiet, introspective prayer. The center medal and crucifix are the ultimate in simplicity, attractive and nicely detailed yet purposeful.

The energy of this devotional is somewhat cerebral, perhaps because the different religious figures on the pater medals stimulate thought and reflection. All have a simple spray of lilies on the verso with the following entities on the face, starting from the crucifix: Ecce Homo, Mother of Good Counsel, St. Therese of Lisieux, St. Anthony of Padua, a profile of Mary that matches the center medal, and St. Joseph.

There appear to be hallmarks on the Ecce Homo and St. Therese medals but the rest are unmarked. Except for the copper bead pins, I believe all other metal components are low grade silver, including the chain. Because I chose not to acid test and risk ruining the clean, satiny finish, let's just say everything is silver plated.

This fun rosary is large enough for adult hands, appropriate for a young person and compact enough to carry. A great all-around rosary that comes boxed and ready for gift-giving.
