This sweetheart of a vintage Catholic rosary combines youthful energy with a classic Art Deco design. Of note are the pearlescent white glass beads molded into a rectangular, 4-sided shape with beveled edges. (I’m sure there’s a name for this shape, but I don’t know what it is.) The beads are mounted on silvered copper pins that have darkened with age.
The beautifully detailed components, including the diamond-cut cable chain are silver plated (tested). The silver is still thick and lovely with just enough patina to accentuate the rose motif in both the center medal and crucifix. Mary’s profile on the medal is sweet and serene, and the roses are well positioned in cartouches on the ends of the cross. The molded corpus is luminous and the entire rosary harmonizes masculine and feminine energies.
Marked “France” on the back of the cross, this religious devotional is in excellent vintage condition and is ready for action. It is well suited for daily use, especially for a younger person growing in faith. Comes boxed and ready for gift-giving.
