All Antique and Vintage Rosaries that I list come from my private collection. They are genuine antiques – older than 100 years – or genuine vintages – from 30 to 100 years old. All are in perfect condition and still very much usable. They are unique and a real pleasure to collect or still use.
The item in this listing has the following characteristics:
This is a French Rosary made of Exceptional smoky quartz faceted beads and 18 Carat solid Gold, dating from the early 20th Century of typical Art Nouveau style – in never used, perfect condition.
1) 6 mm average dia. Vintage round faceted red agate beads for the Ave Marias and 6.5 mm dia. 18K Gold round Elaborate beads for the Pater Nosters.
2) The beads are definitely hand made in view of the small variations in size and shape.
3) 18 K. Gold cross 42 X 25 mm with the bail. Please look at the picture closely. Definitely Art Nouveau with a stylized Iris flower on each extremity.
4) The Ave Maria Monogram center also in 18 K gold. The Cross and Center are both thick and heavy and clearly show that they have never been used. Both are hallmarked with the French hall mark for 18 K Gold : the eagle’s head. The chain is also Hallmarked.
5. All Metal parts are 18 K Gold , chains, bead caps, cross and center as well as all rings. Estimated minimum 9 Grams of 18 K Gold.
6. Total length : 40 cm (16 in.) — Total weight : 22.2 grams. – This item will not go over the head so it may not be worn around the neck as is.
This item is exceptional and of great rarity, it is over 100 years old and still in great condition. Very heavy in 18 K gold with great Art Nouveau design.
Most probably a unique item.
This item has surely been passed on through generations – it is a great heirloom.
