This is the George Washington Crossing the Delaware Fountain Pen by Eagle Pen Company. This is a limited edition pen from their 1776 Historical Woods Collection that features historic wood hewn from "The Georgia Tree" planted by George Washington in 1794.
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 Washington Crossing the Delaware pen series. The series was limited to 76 pens.
The Washington Crossing the Delaware Fountain Pen features a section of chestnut wood from the Georgia Tree planted by Washington in the pen body. The pen cap features original painted artwork by Lynn Peterson that celebrates George Washington. Using Emanuel Leutze's epic 1851 "Washington Crossing the Delaware" oil painting as reference, Lynn Peterson hand-painted a miniature oil painting in monotone oils on the pen cap.
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 Washington Crossing the Delaware Fountain Pen contains one capped fountain pen, which can be converted into a rollerball pen, special red ink for the fountain pen, and a small vial of the chestnut wood used to create each pen. The edition is presented in a special gift box with a numbered and signed certificate from Eagle Pen Company.
