Texas Pecan planted by Sam Houston at his Huntsville Home circa 1847.
Houston's granddaughter told the story of the pecan tree: 'Returning home from a trip (Houston) pulled a pecan sapling from the ground to use as a makeshift buggy whip. Once home, he noticed the sapling's roots were intact & planted it in his yard.' For 127 years this tree grew, but succumbed in 1974. From preserved sections of that same pecan tree, we built this series.
Original artwork by Lynn Peterson
Using a Matthew Brady photograph (1861) for reference, Lynn Peterson hand-paints a miniature work in aged, sepia tone gouache.
Limited 45 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.
