This is the Battle of Trenton Fountain Pen from Eagle Pen Company. The pen body is composed of sections of chestnut wood from the original Georgia Tree planted by George Washington in 1794. This is a one-of-one, limited edition work.
During the last years of his life, George Washington planted 13 horse chestnut saplings in downtown Fredericksburg, Virginia. George Washington named the thirteen trees for the 13 original colonies. The last remaining tree, the Georgia Tree, was felled in 2004 and preserved. From that same Georgia Tree, Eagle Pen Company created this honorary fountain pen.
The pen body features an original piece of the Georgia Tree. The pen cap features original painted artwork by Lynn Peterson, a world-renowned and accomplished miniature artist. Using John Trumbull's 1792 "General George Washington at Trenton" oil painting as reference, Lynn Peterson hand-painted a miniature oil painting on the pen cap.
Lynn Peterson 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.
The father and son team behind Eagle Pen Company are purveyors of some of the world's most unique writing instruments. They share a goal of bringing the luxury pen back to America. From start to finish, each pen is designed and handmade in the USA.
The capped fountain pen can be converted into a rollerball pen. The pen is presented in a special gift box complete with ink, the rollerball converter, and a numbered and signed certificate from Eagle Pen Company and the artist.
