I am currently working on updating and adding to the antique crucifixes on The Sacred Bead. If you are looking for an antique crucifix or an unusual vintage crucifix be sure to look in the newly expanded "Antique Crucifixes and Medals" section. In addition to antique crucifixes, I am adding antique and vintage religious medals and other religious artifacts. As usual, I seem to prefer items from Europe but I'm trying to find and add all kinds of crucifixes and crosses including some vintage turquoise and silver crosses. Visit The Sacred Bead and enjoy the new antique crucifixes and medals section!

Fabulous Antique 15 Decade Wooden Pilgrim Rosary Covered with Medals!

This is an absolutely wonderful rosary dating from sometime in the 30s to 50s and holding 15 medals that commemorate journeys to Christian sacred sites. What a wonderful piece of history. I'm proud to present this incredible rosary on The Sacred Bead! This is a complete, 15 decade rosary, difficult to find without all the medals. In addition to the medals it also has an inlaid crucifix with skull and crossbones at the foot of the cross.
At each Pater bead, a medal has been attached with an S-loop link and jump ring. There are four medals from Lourdes, an aluminum crucifix and an additional 10 medals. They include a beautiful one from Rome with Pope Pius XI who was Pope from 1922-1939. There is an Our Lady of Salette, Our Lady of Myans, a beautiful silver Guardian Angel and St. Joseph, St Christopher and more. Several are lovely blue enamel on metal. I'm including lots of pictures! If you want to buy an antique rosary, The Sacred Bead has one of the best selections on the internet!

 The inlaid crucifix with skull and crossbones along with some of the medals.

 Note the blue enamel medals. See this rosary and many, many other antique rosaries on The Sacred Bead.

This rosary is now on special on page 10 of the Antiques section at The Sacred Bead. Rosary has sold, thank you and hope you enjoy!

Simply a beautiful historic rosary- could easily be used daily as it has the extra-strong links that have double wire, these rarely come apart!
