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 very special and unique item in this listing, is of extreme rarity and has the following characteristics:

1- The rosary dates from the beginning of the 20th century and bears a large Lorraine Sterling Silver cross as well as a Sterling Credo Cross. The cross also a Sterling hallmark for 800 which was the current silver content at the time. What makes it very interesting and rare is that it has a Lorraine Cross which today pertains to a French region, whereas in the early 1900's it was German and it also has a Credo Cross which is particular to the German rosaries.
2- Ave Beads are faceted Carnelian with diameter size is 8 mm
3- Pater Beads are also 8 mm carnelian faceted beads linked by a sterling chain.The triangle with the heart design and all the connecting chains and rings are also sterling silver

5- Total weight of the rosary is 71.7 grams

This is a Unique item in all respects and may even be considered a museum item as it is a representation of mixed cultures pertaining to a border region between two countries.
