A one of a kind artisan designed piece; authentic Antique French Mother of Pearl rosary Beads finished with Crystals coupled with an antique C1908 Art Nouveau Carnet de Bal or Aide Memoire honoring Saint Teresa.
The front featuring this beloved Saint with a French inscription with Roses in all Corners, her symbol. The reverse also has a lovely motif with a Wreaht of Roses and a tres Francais Bow as well as some Art Nouveau scrolls at the top.
The book amazingly maintains the original Paper and pencil.
The raised relief simply cannot be appreciated in the photos!
This is an Amazing piece and will be a treasure to own if you value rarity, beauty and exclusivity in your collections!!
I added a vintage Mother of Pearl Cross and the book is suspended on a 3 way medal with the Sacred Heart and Miraculous Mary.
Beads measures 31"; book is 2" tall by 1 3/8" wide.
