An antique, Italian rosary with real spina Christi beads.

A rosary with real spina Christi beads, the seeds from a thorny plant said to be what Christ's Crown of Thorns was made of.
The crucifix appears to be made of bronze. On the back it has the words 'Roma Terra Delle Catacombe'.
The center of the rosary is made of brass. Viewing this and the beads, the rosary is most probably from the last half of the 20th century.

The rosary has been repaired. The top decade of beads misses one and is perfectly replaced by a little piece of brass.
It consists of 5 decades of spina Christi beads.

The cross measures 4.3 cm's high, which in inches will be around 1.7"
The chain measures 50 cm's from top to bottom, which in inches will be 19.7"

I will ship the rosary safely wrapped in a bubble mailer.

If you have questions, feel free to contact me, I will gladly reply.

*** I try to calculate the shipping costs as well as possible but by purchasing two or more items, they might become higher than the real costs. I always refund the amount payed too much when it passes 1 USD ***
