This limited edition Cherry Blossom ballpoint pen was designed by miniature artist Lynn Peterson and inspired by the beautiful cherry blossom blooms of Washington, DC.
Eagle Pen Company crafted a solid pen barrel made from Yoshino cherry wood. On March 27, 1912, First Lady Helen Herron Taft and the wife of the Japanese ambassador, Viscountess Chinda, planted two Yoshino cherry trees on the northern bank of the Potomac Tidal Basin in Washington, DC. The Yoshino trees, which were gifted by Japan, have a distinct white-pink flower. Lynn Paterson hand painted the matching pink blooms directly onto the Yoshino wood pen barrel. The entire pen is sealed with a glassy lacquer, protecting the artwork and Yoshino wood for generations.
Lynn Peterson, a world-renowned and accomplished miniature artist, creates special gouache and oil pen lines for Eagle Pen Company. Each pen is truly unique and requires, on average, 8 to 12 hours to complete. Lynn’s abilities to paint in such detail and to paint directly on the round surface of the pen body are unmatched.
