15th c. Black Jet Rosary - Pilgrim Badge on Paternoster - Chaplet


This rosary has 50 black jet beads (10mm) divided into 5 decades by carved jet paternosters (13mm). There is a "pathway" to the tassel made of 3 more jet beads and a larger carved jet bead (17mm).

A black tassel hangs from one of the paternosters.
Divided in half, it hangs approximately 18" including the tassel.

This is a style of rosary popular before they were standardized at the Council of Trent in the 16th century. Pilgrim Badges were often attached to rosaries during the Renaissance. This one is a Crowned M for Mother Mary. It has been documented that tassels were used to wipe away the tears of sorrow.
