RARE Lourdes Holy Water Rosary with tiny statues in each bead Sacred Heart
This is quite an old treasure that has statues of the Blessed Virgin Mary in the Mater beads, and the Sacred Heart of Jesus in the Pater Beads. Originally made in 1958 for the 100 year Lourdes Apparition Anniversary in France, each bead would have had holy water in it (since evaporated). The center medal has the Grotto of Lourdes where the precious water came from when it all began in the later 1800's.
The elaborate cross has has the raised Corpus of Christ, and the Crown of thorns as the Nimbus, and JHS just behind Christ's head. . The Crucifix is really beautiful and has tiny blue roses. The lucite rosary, if measured like a necklace is 34" on the necklace loop with an additional drop of 8".
Imagine the wonderful history this must have had at one time!
This is all original too.
