Sweet and petite, as most coral rosaries are, this antique Catholic devotional is crafted from vibrantly colored salmon-orange coral and fine silver. Each original bead is nicely cut and polished into a slightly-flattened, round shape. This enhances their ability to be prayed with some ease, though not for my creaky hands.
At the center is one of my favorite Victorian designs... a Marian monogram on the front and a blank shield on the verso that is ready for engraving. The squared yet ornate crucifix is a work of art... impressed on both sides with exuberant fleurs-de-lis, stylized acanthus and a lovely little floral design at the center. The molded corpus rises high off the cross and features a nicely detailed crown of thorns and facial expression.
Both components are stamped with makers marks, albeit different, and have been tested and confirmed for minimum 800 silver content.
The entire rosary is in excellent antique condition with virtually no signs of wear or repair. It would make a superb gift for a young lady growing in faith and is perfect for carrying with you throughout the day when the need for prayer or peace arises. Comes boxed and ready for gift-giving.
