Thomas Edison tree

my 25th anniversary of crafting the highest quality custom
20, 1994, the Edison Estate in
Ft. Meyers Florida reported that lightning had struck a huge MoretonBay
fig tree on the grounds, that had been planted by Thomas
Edison some 80 years ago. This tree was planted by Edison in his
search for a domestic source of rubber and became the largest tree of
its kind in Florida. The lightning strike so weakened the tree
that the city said the remainder of the tree was dangerous to guests
and visitors to the estate and ordered it completely
removed. Fortunately, a small amount of this historic wood
has found its way to craftsmen around the world and I have been
fortunate enough to acquire enough to make just six pens. That's
it; when it's gone there will be no more!!! The first of
the six is pictured below and
would make a treasured keepsake
for a pen
collector or anyone who enjoys history.
The wood generally resembles cocobolo, with streaks and swirls of
blacks and browns. I have paired this wood with my top end
platinum hardware and gel ink refill. You will love this pen if
you are fortunate enough to get one before they are
gone! I am selling these for $125.00 each,
including free solid wood gift case.
