This petite and very feminine Catholic rosary is crafted of 800 silver filigree and washed with gold. The back of the crucifix contains an Italian hallmark of 800 in an oval lozenge, which dates the rosary from between 1872 to 1933. Given its fine condition and virtually no wear to the gold, it is likely from the 1930s and was carefully preserved by its original owner.
Each hand-crafted bead has a dotted pattern on the surface creating a pleasing tactile experience that facilitates prayer, despite the smaller beads. All 59 beads are original and in excellent vintage condition; none are crushed, dented, or obviously damaged.
At the center is a slender filigree heart whose shape is echoed by the two-budded crucifix. A substantial molded corpus is affixed to the cross. Because the corpus is silver, it contrasts nicely with the vermeil cross to draw your attention to Christ during prayer.
This sweet and thoughtfully designed rosary would make a special gift for a young woman growing in faith. It is also both portable and usable, making it an excellent rosary to carry in your purse. It is in excellent antique condition and is sturdy enough for regular prayer. Comes boxed and ready for gift-giving.
