Item's Dimensions: Closed: 2.25'high X 2.5" diameter
Item's Year of Issue: Late 19th Century Gothic Revival
Condition: Good--hinge requires repair
Materials: Carved Ivory
Country of Origin: Germany?
Description: This unusual objet de vertu is a large ivory rosary bead that opens to expose the central scene with three figures and two side panels--each with one carved figure. It dates from the 19th century and is representational of the Gothic revivalstyle. One hinge needs repair and the top of the sphere is slightly broken away at the point where this bead might have linked to others. However, these flaws do not detract from the object's beauty. (A photo of the closed sphere is available viaemail; it is also available for inspection by appointment in New York City.)

*The AutoBid feature is an optional feature which allows you to place a blanket bid on an item. This way you do not have to be present to raise your bid to the next acceptable bid level should someone else outbid you. If someone outbids you, the AutoBid acts as your agent and raises your bid to the next acceptable winning bid. This will continue until your AutoBid limit is reached. In the event of ties, the AutoBid is the winning bid.
