This lovely, lacy Catholic rosary is decidedly feminine with its filigree beads, pierced crucifix and heart-shaped center medal. The beads are in excellent vintage condition with no dented, smashed or separated beads. Acquired from Germany, these machine-made beads continue the filigree traditions that originated in Schwäbisch Gmünd in upper Bavaria during the 17th and 18th centuries.

At the center is a sweet rendering of Jesus revealing His Sacred Heart and a Madonna and Child surrounded by billowing clouds. Both images have a raised, dotted cuff; brilliant rays and depictions that are suggestive than detailed.

The pierced crucifix has pointy acanthus tips and a cloverleaf nimbus behind Christ's head. The molded corpus is flush with the cross, and the back is marked "Alpacca." Sometimes called German silver, alpacca is an alloy of copper, nickel, zinc and sometimes iron that doesn't rust or tarnish and polishes beautifully. It has no silver content and is used in jewelry-making because of its strength, resemblance to sterling silver and durable finish.

This vintage religious devotional is in excellent overall condition and is well suited for daily prayer. It is lightweight enough to carry in your purse so it can inspire you as you go about your business. You might also consider it for a young lady growing in faith and receiving first sacraments. Comes boxed and ready for gift-giving.
