This is a fantastic vintage rosary. It is an early use of glow in the dark beads, likely from the 1950’s. The crucifix is the same glowing material with a metal corpus and a metal back. The centerpiece shows the Blessed Virgin Mary with hands folded in prayer while the reverse is a small image of Christ with His Sacred Heart exposed.
These rosaries became very popular in the 1950’s and are wonderful keepsakes. Image this scene from a time when Sunday worship was the focus of the week:
“The bishop of Peru shared on EWTN how he loved watching the people on their nightly walk up the mountain to attend Mass the next morning. With their rosaries around their necks or in their hands, you could see the long line of glowing beads moving slowly upward along the mountain trail.“ (taken from the Rosary Workshop website)
