Though simply designed, this well-executed antique rosary combines exceptional art glass beads in a vibrant robin's egg blue color with laced components that are black with a century of patina. What's not to love?
The hand-blown beads are plump and heavier than you would expect for an interactive and satisfying prayer experience. Their rich, opaque color will lift you to the heavens, which surely must have a similar hue. All beads are original and in pristine condition.
From the pins and chains to the laced center and crucifix, the dark patina is evenly distributed and just amazing. The first section of chain bears a French crab hallmark; the components have the boar hallmark denoting items assayed in Paris. Despite their classic and familiar design, the acanthus-filled center and crucifix look very different in black... something I find intriguing and a lovely complement to the blue beads.
This fine Catholic antique would make a singular religious gift for someone special. And if you add it to your rosary collection, be sure to display it so you can enjoy its unique charm. Comes boxed and ready for gift-giving.
