The Coral rosary and its corozo egg shaped, hand carved box are made in France in the early 1920's. Both the rosary and the box are very rare and in pristine condition.

3) All Metal Parts are Sterling Silver: chain, beads, center and cross.
4) STERLING SILVER cross 30 X 16 mm ( 1.2 x 0.65 in).

It is avery hard endosperm seed of species of palm trees called the ivory palms or tagua palms which live from southern Panama along the Andes to Ecuador, Bolivia, Colombia, northwestern Brazil, and Peru. See picture attached.
6) It was very fashionable in the first part of the 20th century to carve these nuts into rosary boxes. Very few have survived until today and become items very highly sough after.
