This Our Lady of Mt Carmel rosary is a tiny vintage rosary measuring only 10 1/2 inches long. It would be the perfect size for adorning a Santos or statue, or for tucking in a small container for travel. The handmade beads vary in size from 2-4 mm, and are a beautiful vibrant pink glass that looks like ribbon candy. All beads are present. The chain, center medal and crucifix are all aluminum - common among vintage rosaries, especially the smaller ones that need to be lightweight in order to balance the delicate small beads. The center medal says Virgo Carmel on one side, with depiction of Mother and Child, and the reverse is the Sacred Heart of Jesus, surrounded in rosettes, stamped FRANCE. The crucifix is stamped as one piece, and is marked FRANCE on the back. Laying flat, this rosary measures 10.5 inches long from top of rosary to bottom of crucifix.
