Terra Sancta Israel 1969 Mosaic Pendant With White Dove

Bitchin Retro


A little piece of history from the 1969 Israel Terra Sancta Guild. An enameled mosaic backdrop in groovy retro shapes and colors surrounds a white dove. Awesome symbolism in a vibrant vintage pendant.

1 5/8" diameter. 

We clean, inspect and return vintage treasures to their best possible condition. Decades of old makeup, dirt and dust are removed and pieces receive a light polish. This process takes many attempts and sometimes hours of work. This is in stark contrast to most sellers. Our vintage jewelry is ready to wear, and in the best possible condition we were able to provide. It is a labor of love, and we think it shows in our photos and in person.

Bitchin Retro Notes: This pendant is in very good vintage condition. The enamel has normal wear, mostly on the white dove. This could be easily brought back up to a bright white appearance using a quality enamel paint, or left as is with retro charm and patina. This pendant has been thoroughly cleaned. It was a bit hard to photograph. If we zoomed in, it exaggerated the variations in the enamel paints. If we photographed from a conversational distance, we captured either a lot of shadows or an overly brightened edge with a flash. To provide you with the most accurate representation of the coloring and brass edges, we decided to hand edit, removing both high and low reflections on the brass. Any small deviations to perfectly round edges, are a result of our editing. There is one small flea bite at the bottom, as seen in the photo. Please see condition descriptions below.

Vintage jewelry is rarely perfect. We will do our best to note any obvious flaws, but flea bites, and small scratches are to be expected. Please view all photos with zoom to see characteristics of this listing, and note the measurements provided, as we use a telephoto lens to show as much visual detail as we can. This may enhance size perception. We would be happy to answer any questions, or provide additional photos. 

Condition Descriptions: 

Excellent = very little to no visible wear, though minimal flea bites/scratches may be seen thru a loupe or magnification. 

Very Good = normal wear and tear typical for the age which can be seen up close, as well as flea bites/scratches seen thru a loupe.

Average = significant wear seen with and without a loupe. We will note specifics and provide photos. 

We want you to be happy with your purchase, and have provided information to highlight the features and any imperfections or vintage love on our pieces. We also share condition descriptions (and lots of pictures) so that you are aware of how we arrived at our opinion. If despite our best efforts we miss something, we will be happy to work with you. 

Give us an opportunity to make it right...because we will.
