The item in this listing has the following
The rosary and its Tiger cowry shell egg shaped box are made in France in the early 1930's.
The cowry Shell box is made in such a way as it can be used as a pendant. This is quite unusual and very seldom seen.
Both items are very rare and in unusual pristine condition, practically unused.
1) 4 mm Vintage Genuine Mediterranean Coral beads for the Ave Marias and also for Paters. . It is extremely rare to find such quality coral today as fishing of coral is prohibited and most new coral is dyed.

4) Vermeil cross 45 X 22 mm ( 1.8 x 0.9 in), also Vermeil Center. Both cross and center have a typical art deco style.
