Here's a wonderfully eclectic vintage Catholic rosary for your religious collection! The mother-of-pearl beads are irregularly sized, drilled and shaped and have wonderful organic fluorescence.
The beads are mounted on copper pins that appear to have been silvered at one time but little remains except close to the beads. Because copper is so pliable some pins are stretched, so I suggest only display or gentle prayer for this delicate, hand-made beauty. Surrounding each pater are sections of brass tri-lobe chain in excellent condition with no twisted, turned or missing links.
At the center is a sweet triangular scapular medal with Jesus and His Sacred Heart on the front and Our Lady of Mt. Carmel on the verso. Both images are a nice combination of details and devotional smoothing, and the verso is marked "Italy."
Unique to this rosary is the three-dimensional, stamped and gilded brass crucifix. Its size and elongated shape immediately capture your attention and make it a natural focus of meditation. The details are excellent, including subtle wood grain on the cross. Note that because the cross is flat, the square corners may be perceived as sharper than usual.
This one-of-a-kind vintage rosary is ready to grace your collection and intrigue you with its singular beauty. Comes boxed and ready for gift-giving.
