Beautiful marked Sterling silver rosary. The crucifix is marked A P STERLING- and the back of the rosary connector is marked simply STERLING. The rosary is complete with 59 beads and measures approximately 23 inches long when laid flat. This is an incredibly beautiful vintage rosary that was well taken care of. The rosary connector is a large art deco style with the Virgin Mary on the front and Jesus carrying his cross on the back. The crucifix is large and ornate- overall this is just a gorgeous rosary.

Beautiful religious marked Made in Czechoslovakia glass miniature rosary box pendant. It does come with the miniature beaded rosary- that is shown. The pendant Measures 1 & 1/16ths tall. I did not note any chipping to the glass- just some very tiny flea bites to one corner. The round glass Czech rosary boxes or lockets have a bail and were meant to be worn or suspended from a chain.This is a sweet little rosary box locket.
