Declaration of Independence signor Richard Stockton # N;ANB0710 Black Locust and Lapis Pen
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 honey colored wood on this pen gives off a brilliant little light show that puts the lapis inlays to shame. There is no clip on this pen because there was not any part I was willing to cover up. You’ll see what I mean when you tip it around in the light.
