There seven silver medals all of which depict The Virgin mary on one side and the grotto scene from Lourdes on the other.
The hand made nickel silver cross has 'Souvenir Of Lourdes' on the reverse so this lovely rosary dates from the latter part of the 19th century.

In total it weighs 21.9g and would be suitable for a girl or woman.
This lovely rosary is in excellent condition, it just needs a polish.
