Rosary Mark from 1830

Postby dmueller22 » Wed Mar 13, 2013 11:41 pm

Hey everyone. I have a rosary given to me from my grandma, and I was looking really closely at it the other day and noticed that on one part of the rosary, it is marked '1830,' so I presume that's the date of manufacture (unless I'm wrong), and on the back of the cross it's marked with this:

Any ideas whose mark it is? Thanks!

Welcome to the forum. Wish I could really be of assistance, but the only thing I have to offer is that the 1830 year may represent the date of an apparition of the Virgin Mary to Sister (now Saint) Catherine Labouré, in the convent at Rue de Bac, Paris. So far, I have not been able to identify the trademark, but it probably belongs to a twentieth century American manufacturer.

Yup, the date relates to the saints vision, has nothing to do with the year of manufacture.
