French Art Nouveau Silver & Mother-of-Pearl Rosary - Sweet & Petite
What’s not to love about this classic and beautifully executed antique Catholic rosary? Genuine mother of pearl is always a beautiful choice for its purity of color, engaging fluorescence and organic energy. The beads on this sweet rosary also feature naturally-occurring faces that create tactile interest during prayer.
The lovely laced center has scrolling acanthus in the center and a clearly discernable French crab hallmark, indicating fine silver assayed outside Paris. The pierced crucifix, by contrast, has more geometric design elements, balancing the masculine and feminine energy in this devotional. The bail is marked “France” and “AP,” a renowned foundry, with another crab hallmark.
Consider this delightful treasure for anyone who loves mother of pearl and appreciates a smaller-sized rosary that is easy to hold, easy to pray and captivating in its beauty. It is in excellent antique condition and comes boxed and ready for gift-giving.
