Seller: Top-Rated Seller the_rosarium_collection (364) 100%, Location: Perth, WA, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 321916045344 This circa 1920's to 1930's large mother of pearl beads rosary is made of an unusual shell unlike we see most often. The beads are made of genuine mother of pearl beads which are more light yellow pearl beads rather than pearl white beads. They are unique because these mother of pearl beads are not too common and not easily found. Rather, they have a natural slight yellowy tone. There are different species of shell that produce different types of beads. To be able to see the difference, please see the last picture. A rosary well prayed on, this a long rosary at 24 inches. It is made of brass metal. It has been silvered once but devotion to prayers has erased its silver coating and has given this rosary its own unique character. This type of antique rosaries are becoming hard to find particularly at this length. We see more modern versions of this pearl rosaries but they do not have the same charm as the antique ones. Ideal for your everyday prayers, please take the time to study the details of this antique rosary: Crucifix: In Art Nouveau design with fleur de lys motif on four ends of cross. Corpus is cast on the cross rather than separate from the frame. Size including bail: 38mm x 25mm. Links: are made of brass links. All metal in this rosary are original to the rosary and as found. These chain and metal parts have been silvered once but time and use have given it a very nice antique patina. Beads: are made of genuine mother of pearl beads with a hint of yellow tint on it. It is the natural colour of the pearl shell. Like most antique mother of pearl beads rosary, the sheen on this beads have mellowed over time. Kindly consider that if you are one of those who wants very shiny beads. One or two beads shows scratches or lines which are not crack but are natural striations of the shell. The beads are of irregular size which suggest they are handmade rather than machine-made.Size of Ave beads: 7-7.5mmSize of Pater beads: 9.5-10mm Center Medal: is an Art Deco design medal in triangular form. It features the Virgin Mary on one side and the Sacred Heart of Jesus at the reverse. Medals: are made of antique and vintage aluminium medals: Oval medal is the Miraculuous medal.
