Antique Ivory Rosary, Hand Made and Hand Strung, Dieppe Work, Circa 1850

Although this is a full 5 decade rosary it is just 39 cm long as it is so exquisitely made. Each  ivory bead is hand carved and the 'Our Father' beads are intricately carved.

In total length it is 39 cm. The cross is 6 x 3.5 cm and it weighs 50 grams

Although unfamiliar to the eyes of rosary users in the United States, antique strung rosaries are common in Europe and descended from the earliest of rosaries. Wiring a rosary didn't come into fashion until the 1700s so in the vast history of prayer beads, it is a rather modern development!

This beautiful ivory rosary was created by the master carvers of Dieppe and came from the collection of an elderly lady in the north of France.

As these lovely rosaries were used a lot they often had to have the string re-tied but this is not the case here. Often beads would be lost and replaced but these are all original as they are all matching and so could only have all been carved at the same time. There is, though, one bead missing.

This gorgeous rosary will ship with international tracking. Please note that shipping to the USA takes around 10-12 working days.
