"Build a Pen®"
The History Salvaged "Build a Pen®" Collection is an exquisite collection of custom-crafted pens featuring caps with one-of-a-kind miniature fine art paintings by renowned artist Karen Libecap.
Karen has partnered with History Salvaged on an exclusive basis to create custom commissioned fine art for our customers.
This unprecedented collaboration provides a unique opportunity for our clientele to create a personal Heirloom in the form of a Fine Art Painting of the clients choosing, combined with our master pen artisan's talents, to offer a museum-quality, functional piece of fine art in the form of a fountain pen or rollerball.
The clientele will provide a photo or image of their choice for Karen to paint on the cap of one of 6 styles of History Salvaged custom-crafted pens. Additionally, clients will select from a variety of common, exotic and Witness Wood® that will comprise the barrel section of each one of a kind "Build a Pen®". The painting will then be processed and integrated by our Master Pen Maker into the cap housing to create a handcrafted work of functional Fine Art.
The History Salvaged "Build a Pen®" Collection will complement our mission to "Keep History Alive" through the creation of family heirlooms and fine art that can be passed down from generation to generation, thus preserving family history and a historical record for the client.
