    I found this in Lanaken, Belgium. Considering I arrived "late" in terms of flea markets - after 9 a.m. - I was surprised that there were still some goodies left for me, lol! I recognized the rosary immediately for what it is and snapped it up. I haven't cleaned it yet. The third photo is how the image appears in the stanhope. I've seen the stanhope rosary posted four years ago, one exactly like mine but clean. :-))))

    Thanks for looking/loving.

      Efesgirl that amazing! Great for you! No idea about the mark but it has a catholic feel about it?
    3. Efesgirl Efesgirl, 5 years ago
      Elizabethan - that's not a mark. That is a minuscule drawing which can be viewed by looking into the cross. That bit in the middle is a "window" to the drawing.

      Definition of a Stanhope: A simple, one-piece microscope invented by Charles, the third Earl of Stanhope. It is a cylinder of glass with each end curved outwards, one being more convex than the other.
      The glass cylinder is built in to the cross.

      Bonnie, it is actually a microphotograph of a picture :-)
