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 with 7 Rare medals. It is large and impressive and gives great pleasure in handling
The rosary itself, from its style, dates from the beginning of the 20th Century. Medals vary in age as is usually the case as it was habitual that the owner has added to his rosary older medals that he got from his family.
The final aspect is an awesome item with great attractiveness.
