Stations Of The Cross Rosary, , Ebony Beads, Solid Silver Link and Stations Medals, Late 18th/ Early 19th Century

There is so much to say about this beautiful Stations of the Cross rosary. Firstly the beads are made of carved ebony and each of the medals is solid silver while the chain is bronze.

It is rare to have a rosary where the finish is with a medal instead of a cross but that is the case here.

Each of the stations of the cross medals are an individual work of art. Each is inscribed in French on one side and has a scene from the Passion of Christ on the other.

I have translated the French inscription from each medal.

The link medal has a lamb on one side and on the other the inscription
'Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world.
Jesus lives. I believe. I am a Christian.'

Then the Stations of the Cross medals.
