Cardinals Sterling Silver SF & Arrow Hallmarked Rosary

We have received several rare pieces on consignment for auction from the family, and friends of a Catholic Cardinal who passed away in Rome this year. The winning bidders will be helping the Carmelite Convent Soup Kitchens in Peru .

We know the name of this beloved Cardinal, and will provide it to the winning bidder. No other information will be made available, except the following description below.

T are two large groups of devotional Catholic items that have been sent to us; they include the most beautiful group of rosaries we have ever seen, as well as some small ancient Byzantine period crosses from Europe. They will all be auctioned seperately. These items have been deep cleaned and serviced, so under Church tradition, they would need to be blessed again. If they had not been serviced, we could not have offered them for auction.


What you are bidding on is sterling silver vintage rosary inside a silver-platted Vatican Rosary box from the period of Pope John XIII, 1958 vintage.

The rosary is complete and its 19 inches hanging length. The cross size is 2 inches and the medal size is .75 inches. The entire rosary weighs 25 grams, and it has no damage or repairs.

Church-Woman Antiques will be donating the cost of all listing fees, including domestic shipping and insurance.
