Art Nouveau Purple Rosary

Regular price €129

A fabulous French rosary, made of sterling silver (vermeil), from the Art Nouveau period, circa 1900s. The mater beads are made of purple crystal to make it easy to pray. Each Pater beads have been finely capped and are separated by tiny medals depicting a religious decor: Jesus, Saint Anthony of Padua, Madonna and Child etc. 
The purple color of these beads is geogeous and hard to capture in pictures with the lighting. The fine centerpiece finely features Virgin Mary, Our Lady of Fourviere. The ornate crucifix is gorgeous. 

They don't make rosaries of this quality anymore. 

This beautiful religious jewelry would be a great Communion gift. Good antique condition with some normal signs of ages. It is an authentic French rosary of almost 100 years old. It is hallmarked on the cross ring, on the centerpiece and on the chain. Please take a close look at the photos, they are an integral part of the description.
