MUSEUM INSPIRED – Hand Carved Bone Rosebuds Rosary – (26.5 in.) – RMI.21200

  • Description



AVE BEADS: 8mm beads are pre WWII –  from the 1930-40’s (Germany)and are a lovely matte brown somewhat translucent.  This Museum Inspired piece originally did not have a crucifix or center, we also added those to our interpretation.

PATER BEADS: We have used hand carved bone rose beads. Each is capped with an antiqued filigree as the early rosaries were!

CRUCIFIX: GRAND BAROQUE CRUCIFIX – Europe / age unknown – (2.4375 in. H x 1.6875 in. W)

CENTER:  LG FILIGREE HOLY SCAPULAR CENTER – France / Vintage – ( 1.25 in. )”

INSPIRATION: Inspired by antique rosaries and chaplets in European museums and books from the 16c up.
Working with rare components does make a difference in the finished design. Crucifixes, rosary centers and religious medals cast from antiques in sterling and bronze along with hard to find antique beads (or those inspired by them) do make the difference. But most of all, it is in the way a designer chooses to put it all together. These old rosaries and chaplets from the 16 – 19c speak to the heart in a special way, regardless if they were put together by an artist or by a guild – or simply by someone who took what they had and strung it into a prayer chain. But the results are so beautiful that they are now resting in museums all over Europe

ABOUT OUR MEDALS: All our crucifixes, rosary centers and religious medals are hand cast from antique and vintage pieces in sterling silver and solid bronze, then antiqued to restore original patina.
