All Antique and Vintage Rosaries that I list come from my private collection. They are genuine antiques – older than 100 years – or genuine vintages – from 30 to 100 years old. All are in perfect condition and still very much usable. They are unique and a real pleasure to collect or still use.
The item in this listing has the following characteristics:
The rosary and its Sterling Silver repousse box are made in France.
The Sterling repoussé box dates from the 1830's as the Hallmark on the box is the French "Vieillard" hallmark which was used for sterling from 1819 to 1838,. The Rosary dates from the early 1920's. Both are very rare and pristine condition.
1) 6.5 x 4.5 mm average size Vintage Glass (?) Bloodstone oval beads for the Ave Marias and 7.5 x 5.5 mm for the Pater Nosters. At first look these beads appear to be bloodstone but a closer inspection reveals they are glass imitating bloodstone, but made so well that one may be mistaken. The beads are definitely hand made in view of the small variations in size and shape. In fact this high quality, perfectly crafted art glass is today much more rare than genuine bloodstone. The oval cut adds to the rarity.
3) All Metal Parts of the rosary are Vermeil - gold plated Sterling Silver.
4) Such a sterling box - about 200 years in pristine condition is very rarely seen and makes this set a real collector's item.
5) The rosary is sold with its box, as a set.
6) Total length of rosary : 41 cm ( 16.4 in.)
