Vintage French Carved Wood Bead Rosary
A vintage French carved wood bead rosary. Vintage rosary from France uses black carved round wooden beads for the Pater beads and black wooden rice shaped beads for the Ave beads. The center connector is a silver tone engraved image of Mary and her halo with floral elements framing both the top and bottom. The reverse of the connector is the image of Jesus. The braided metal wires are much stronger than string which is why this rosary has lasted so very long. The three part crucifix has the image of Jesus Christ with the words INRI above set on black wood with the arms and back wrapped in silver-tone metal and signed France and GD. This rosary measures approx. 20" long with a center connector measuring approx. 3/8" x 5/8" and the crucifix measuring approx. 1-1/8" 1-7/8".
