I am pleased to offer this classically designed Art Nouveau Catholic rosary that is well crafted with fine materials, all of which are in superb antique condition. It features faceted cornflower blue crystal beads with a white core that reflects the light for a wonderful sparkle. The rosary is complete with 59 beads, all of which are original.
A heart-shaped center has a youthful profile of Mary with a single flower in her hair. Under her gaze is a Communion chalice, with a spray of lilies behind her. A French boar hallmark is on the bottom bail, indicating silver assayed in Paris. The gold plating is nicely distributed on both the face of the medal and the blank verso.
Note the hand-coiled double loops attaching the crucifix and center to robust sections of chain. The rosary is sturdier than it looks and is more than capable of handling active prayer.
An airy and ornate rosary adds a sweet feminine touch. Plump fleurs-de-lis accent the pointed tips with a nice, broad cuff outlining the cross. The fine molded corpus lies flush against the cross. Like the center, the vermeil is in excellent condition with another French boar hallmark on the bail.
This antique religious devotional would make a superb gift for a young communicant and is equally suited for an adult. Comes boxed and ready for gift-giving.
