Independence Hall chestnut timber, circa 1735.
During a renovation of Independence Hall (1897-1898), 16 of the original chestnut support beams were replaced. Only one of those beams survived the years intact & documented. From that very beam this historical series was born.
Original Artwork by Lynn Peterson.
Inspired by John Trumbull's famed 'Declaration of Independence' (1819), which now hangs in the Capitol Rotunda, Lynn Peterson hand-paints a miniature rendition in colorful gouache.
Limited 76 Pen Series
From start to finish, concept to construction, Eagle pens are made & assembled in America. We collaborate with select artists, jewelers, & machinists to create limited edition works.
Two versions of this series are offered, a Red-Letter edition and a Ballpoint. The Red-Letter edition is a fountain pen (configurable as a rollerball) featuring hand-painted artwork and historic material while the Ballpoint solely features the historic material. Both versions come inked and prepared in a beautiful matching box with a display shard of the historic relic and signed paperwork.
