INSIGHT ON AVAILABLE 
MATERIALS AND SPECIAL COUNTS
This small chain chaplet was probably hand made by or for the pray-er.  The special configuration of 12 Aves on the circle is interesting.  The three Aves hanging from the Red carved Pater bead was typical of the early 1900s.  Few rosaries or chaplets used a metal center piece as a junction at that time. It was usually the first Pater bead on the pendant.
+
The red and yellow beads are wonderfully primary and most likely what was available. Note the medals, a very early Benedict Medal and an Apostolate Medal.  They give us insight on medals from this period.

 LOOK AGAIN 
AT HOW IT WAS PUT TOGETHER
Quoting the dealer, Catholica " This is a piece that caught my eye and I am offering it as found.  It has a naive charm that could suggest that is was made into a chaplet, or it could be a variant of the Little Crown chaplet that consisits of 12 Hail Marys (in memory of the 12 years of the Sacred Infancy of Jesus) and 3 Our Fathers (in honour of someones faith and veneration.)  It is certauily antique and appears to be made with organic type beads (one is cracked in half)."  The total length of this chaplet is 5.5 inches.
