Perfect for your purse, wallet or briefcase, this delightful antique Catholic rosary is grounded, regal, and ready for action. Likely dating from the late 1800s / early 1900s, it features brass chain and components, all of which boast dark, creamy patina.

In its original condition, it was missing two dark red glass beads. I restored it to full devotional use by adding brass beads from a similarly-aged rosary as pater beads and reconfiguring the decades. Frankly, I think this enhances the beauty and functionality of the rosary but I’ll leave that determination up to you.

The glass beads are dark red with cherry undertones and look especially beautiful in light. All are in excellent condition with no chips or cracks. The paters are also without dings and dents. My favorite tri-lobe chain separates the decades and all links are intact and facing the same direction.

A sweet, heart-shaped Miraculous Medal is at the center of the rosary with a stamped crucifix. I especially like the trefoil tips and radiant nimbus around Christ’s head. The corpus has lovely details and has great energy for its size.

These wonderful old rosaries are rarely in such nice condition, making this one worthy of your consideration. Good things come in smaller packages, so consider this sturdy little beauty for travel or a young person growing in faith. Comes boxed and ready for gift-giving.
