Captain James Bell Tavern Pens
James Bell was a captain in the revolutionary war that ran a Tavern in Cumberland county PA. This Tavern became known as a meeting place for anti-federalists who believed that the constitution wouldn't adequately protect us and that we needed a bill of rights as well. One particular meeting was one of the precursor discussions to the writing of the bill or rights. Sadly, this historic building was recently demolished. Fortunately I was able to salvage a small amount of wood from the property. Because there is no ongoing supply of this historic wood, availability will be limited.
In order to turn this old wood into fine writing instruments, I began the process of located and removing all of the old square cut nails. Then I was able to cut the wood into smaller pieces and put them through a 'stabilizing' process - infusing the wood with clear resin to make it ultra durable.
Each wood pen is handcrafted by me locally - only a town away from where the Bell Tavern stood. Polished to glossy perfection, I personally ensure the quality and craftsmanship of each one. Included is an information card for your reference or to pass along if the pen is a gift. A portion of proceeds from all sales go to local preservation efforts.
