Vintage French Rosary with Enamel & Wirework Beads – Ave Maria Center – NOS
Looking for a Catholic rosary that combines pristine condition and a vintage aesthetic? Then consider this French “new old stock” devotional that is vintage, but unused and uncirculated.
The ornate beads look like cloisonné but are constructed with a metal core that is decorated with vitreous enamel and fine wirework set into the enamel. This creates a slightly rough texture and tactile, interactive experience when holding the rosary.
The matte silver tone center has a beautiful profile of Mary with crisp details and an Art Deco aesthetic. “Ave Maria” is in front of Mary’s face with a simple cuff framing her cameo. Jesus is on the verso, his hands encircling His Sacred Heart and raised in benediction.
The two-layer crucifix is a combination of matte and shiny planes with a nicely detailed molded corpus. “Lourdes” is engraved on the verso, so my guess is this was originally manufactured as a souvenir rosary.
Practical yet elegant, this compact rosary would make a lovely religious gift and is well suited for daily prayer. Comes boxed and ready for gift-giving.
