A beautifully vintage rosary with richly patinated brass filigree connector and crucifix. The round, faceted jet black glass beads are all in very good condition. The first two decades have been replaced by smooth rice-shaped black glass beads. This repair was done with obvious care and love before this beautiful piece found its way to me, so I have decided to leave it as part of its history. In my experience collecting rosaries, it is difficult to date certain pieces but connector, crucifix and beads dates this piece 1940s or earlier.
Rosary chain is 28" or 71 cm with a 6" or 15 cm drop including the 2' or 5 cm crucifix.
All my jewellery is made by hand by my partner Mike and myself in a converted 18th century naval school on the wild North coast of Scotland. All pieces come gift wrapped with lavender and Scottish heather.
