A vintage French rosary with black wooden beads.

I think this rosary has been a first communion rosary, it is small and short.
The cross of the rosary is simple and has on the eyelet the word 'France' embossed.
On the back it says 'Souvenir de Nevers'. Nevers is a city in Burgundy which has a large convent founded in 1680 called 'des Sœurs de la Charité de Nevers', the Sisters of Charity of Nevers.

The rosary consists of 5 decades of simple, black, wooden beads and a metal chain.
The cross measures 2.7 cm's high, which in inches will be around 1.5" and the chain measures 35 cm's from top to bottom without the cross, which in inches will be 13.75"
The centerpiece has Sainte Bernadette on both sides.

The rosary is in vintage condition..
A lovely collectible piece.

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 ***
