Such a handsome rosary! Long and luxurious, this vintage Lourdes souvenir rosary features deep purple art glass beads, an Art Deco-style center medal, and a clinched purple crucifix. Its size, weight, and classic styling make it suitable for a man or woman.

Each elongated, 4-sided bead has an irregular shape with broad planes that make it easy to hold and pray. The molded art glass beads have a white seam and are designed to resemble the marble quarried in the mountains around Lourdes. Each bead is capped with two o-rings for added elegance. All 59 beads are original and in excellent vintage condition.

The silvertone center medal bears a profile of St. Bernadette Soubirous on the front executed in classic Art Deco styling. The verso has a nicely detailed image of Bernadette holding a candle and kneeling before Our Lady in the grotto.

The cross is dark purple clad in silvertone metal that is stamped “Lourdes” on the verso. It appears to be made of hard plastic that’s in excellent condition. A beautifully detailed molded corpus and an INRI banner are pegged into the plastic. The contrast is quite striking, as is the patina on the corpus.

This lovely vintage devotional is uplifting and intriguing to hold. Comes boxed and ready for gift-giving.
