Magdalen Chaplet - Amber Glass & Bone Paternoster Renaissance Rosary


This rosary was inspired by the string of beads in Rogier van der Weyden's 15th century painting, "The Magdalen Reading." The beads appear to be translucent so if they were a prop from the artist's studio, they could be made of glass. If owned by the rich patron that commissioned this painting, they could be amber.

As in the painting, this hand-strung reproduction has 16 amber colored glass 10mm beads, we have added carved bone beads to represent the 3 white paternosters that separate the amber beads into 2 sections with 8 beads in each section. It is strung on black silk beading thread with matching tassels at each end. We have added a loop for holding on the thumb or adding a cord or chain for hanging from the belt. This string of prayer beads measures approx. 12" in overall length.

Shipped in a velvet pouch.
A FREE Latin prayer booklet is included with each rosary purchase.
We ship via USPS Priority Mail with insurance so that your package arrives in 2-3 days and you can track it on-line.
