Vintage Sacred Heart Rosary Box with Baby Tiny Alpaca Metal Bead Rosary
Vintage Sacred Heart rosary box in good condition - measuring approximately 1 & 1/4ths inches tall including the bail. It comes complete with a tiny marked alpaca rosary. The rosary is approximately 10 & 1/2 inches long as a drop.
Alpaca silver is not sterling silver- it is a metal developed in 1823 by a German company to mimic the visual qualities on silver. For a full description of alpaca silver please read http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nickel_silver - particularly the section title "history."
