Large 51inch Ebony Rosary Beads 12m Christian Catholic
This is a very large 51″ late Art Deco to early Mid Century ebony Christian/Catholic rosary from Italy with long oval 12mm ebony beads. It is very light weight and easy to carry. Marked Italy on the metal backed crucifix. The centerpiece has a fancy cut out open work raised Miraculous Mary with stars above her head. It is also marked Italy. The crucifix is 2 1/8″ tall and looks like it is framed in 1940s aluminum. From an Art Deco estate. Other than a thin split in the wood on one arm where the Christ figure is nailed into the cross it is in excellent, original condition. Never repaired. Still strong and secure. No damage or wear the beads. This is a lovely estate rosary for your vintage religious collection.
