This pen is made from a Tulip Poplar tree growing near the Johnson Ferry House at Washington Crossing the site of the arduous and famous Christmas crossing that started the Ten Crucial Days. This hazardous but pivotal crossing and and the three battles that followed rekindled hope in a failing American Revolution.
This interesting pen is from one piece of wood, the dark and light parts separated from each other while drying out so I reconnected them with some gold acrylic. The dark part is shades of dark gray and brown. The top portion is beige and gray with chtoyant stripes and a patch of gold flake acrylic. This pen has no clip. The tree was located at 40°17'58.65"N 74°52'7.65"W
