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 Rosary in this listing is very rare and exquisite item with the following characteristics:

1) The rosary is a 5 decade Catholic Rosary made with top quality Sardinian Coral faceted beads.

2) All metal parts are Sterling Silver. The silver in this rosary is very heavy.

2) There are 2 hallmarks on the cross: one with a Crab and this was used as from 1838 in France as a Sterling Hallmark.
The second hallmark is that if an old man. This was used from 1819 to 1838 as the Sterling French Hallmark.
It is customary that for pieces older than 1838 a second hallmark was apposed : This is the case with the cross.

Therefore these hallmarks allow us to date the rosary to a period ranging 1819 to 1838 - this is why 1830 is a reasonable inference.

3) Beads are made of top quality Sardinian Coral. Such coral is very rare nowadays as harvesting is forbidden.

Beads are faceted drums and rounds with an average 5x5 mm for Aves and 7x7 mm mm for the Paters. As they are hand carved these figures may differ slightly from one to the other,
this is why an average is mentioned.

4) The cross is a real beauty 70 x 40 mm. with an intricate hand work .

5) The total length of the rosary is 56 centimeters. The weight of the rosary is a heavy 37.5 grams. Mainly due to the extent of sterling on the rosary and the large heavy cross.
The Rosary may be worn and will go over the head- any size
