Declaration of Independence signor Richard Stockton # N;ANB079 Black Locust and Turquoise
This is a pen made from a Black Locust tree growing at Morven. This house served as the official residence of several New Jersey Governors, and was originally, the home of Richard Stockton, a New Jersey signatory to the Declaration of Independence and the only signer captured and imprisoned by the British during the American Revolution. The dark wood around the worm hole is contrasted with an inlay of light blue turquois. The honey colored wood on this pen gives off a brilliant little light show. You will see what I mean when you tip it around in the light.
