When my father returned from the Navy in 1949, he brought several rosaries back from Rome, and I am listing them here. This one is a fresh pink glass beaded strand marked "Roma - Terra Della Catacombe," and is a souvenir of the catacombs. It has a tiny glass window at the bottom containing soil from the catacombs. There is a bright orange celluloid accent backing the figure of Christ.

All the metal pieces are a gold tone and have a bit of rich patina.

The entire rosary measures 20" when held straight, with the loop being a circumference of 26." The crucifix measures 1" by 1.75".

I do my best to ship items within a day, weather permitting, and am happy to quote international shipping rates on request.

Thanks for visiting,
