Additionally, the accents and hardware used are in many cases handcrafted. The creation of our museum and collector quality works of history and functional art cannot be rushed as we make everything to stand the test of time. Although we strive to deliver all of our Handcrafted Heirlooms as quickly as possible our current delivery is between 4-6 weeks on most of our Witness Wood® creations on most orders and we are booked out a full 6 months on our “Build A Pen®” program of custom Fine Art Miniature Painted Capped Pens by renowned artist Karen Libecap.

We hope that our FROM STOCK program will alleviate some of the many requests we have for gifts and more immediate needs. Thank You All for your continued support and helping History Salvaged “Keep History Alive”!
