HMS VICTORY - THE BATTLE OF TRAFALGAR

HMS Victory at Battle of Trafalgar THE HMS VICTORY AT THE BATTLE OF TRAFALGAR

The HMS Victory is a 104-gun, first-rate, ship-of-the-line of the Royal Navy.  It was ordered in 1758, laid down in 1759, and launched in 1765.  She is best known as Admiral Lord Nelson's flagship (flagship of the First Sea Lord) at the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805.  Admiral Lord Nelson led twenty-seven British ships of the line and defeated thirty-three French and Spanish ships.

 

During the battle, Admiral Lord Nelson was shot by a French musketeer and died three hours later on the deck of the Victory.

 

 In 1922 the HMS Victory was placed permanently into dry dock in the Portsmouth Naval Dockyard, where she remains today.  Over 25 million visitors have visited her as a museum of the sailing navy and the oldest commissioned warship in the world.  She is the only surviving line of battle ship from the Age of Sail.  Please fill out the form below for a quotation.

Queen of England - Sandringham Estate

The wood blanks that we are able to bring to you harken back to their royal roots. These come directly from the gardens of the Sandringham Estate, the Queen of England's much-loved country retreat. On over 6,000 acres, 60 of which are exclusive gardens, this elaborate estate has housed Royalty since Elizabethan times.

 

Sandringham has been the private home of the English monarchy since 1862 when it was purchased by Queen Victoria. Besides Balmoral Castle, it is the only property that is privately owned by the British Royal Family. In addition to the main home, gardens, and an important stud farm, there are many other buildings on the estate. One of which is Park House where in 1961, Diana, Princess of Wales, was born.

 

Please select one of the following woods from Sandringham Estate and fill in the form below for a quotation.

SANDRINGHAM ESTATE SANDRINGHAM ESTATE

Hornbeam  is a deciduous broadleaf tree native to the southern of the UK, but widely planted elsewhere. The name hornbeam comes from the hardness of its timber - ‘horn’ means ‘hard’ and ‘beam’ was the name for a tree in old English. The European Hornbeam is widely cultivated as an ornamental tree, for planting in gardens and parks in the UK, and has gained the Royal Horticultural Society's Award of Garden Merit.  The wood of the Hornbeam is a pale creamy white with a flecked grain. It is extremely hard and strong, and so is mainly used for furniture and flooring.

 

Historic uses for the wood included ox-yokes, butchers' chopping blocks and cogs for windmills and water mills. A tonic made from hornbeam is said to relieve tiredness and exhaustion, and in the past its leaves were used to stop bleeding and heal wounds.

 

The English Yew  is a conifer tree native to the British Isles and Europe. The leaves, bark and seeds of the yew  were employed in olden days to make a poison. Today, the yew is used to produce Taxol, a cancer fighting drug.

The wood of the yew was widely used by early native Britons. The oldest known wooden implement discovered to date, has been a spear made of yew wood. About 50,000 years old, it is from Clacton-on-Sea in  England. In the Middle Ages, yew became the preferred wood for bows. Yew wood was also one of the "nine sacred woods" used in the ritual fires of the Celts, and was said to have magical properties to protect the soul.

 

The yew is a long-lived species. The oldest tree in Europe is said to be the Fortingall Yew of Fortingall, Scotland, near Loch Tay. It is estimated to be somewhere between 2,000 -3,000 years old.

HIC! TIPSY WOODS

These blanks are from the actual casks that were used to age these famous wines and whiskeys! Usually cut from the American or English oak staves they have been deeply impregnated with the heady blend of liquor for years or even decades before you see them as blanks. The aroma on these is simply heavenly, and they certainly are unique and intriguing!!! What a great conversation starter! We have barrel staves from Churchill's Port, Highland Park whiskey, Jack Daniel's Bourbon, Jim Beam Devil's Cut Bourbon, Macallan Whiskey, Laphroaig Scotch to name a few. Each pen comes with its own certificate of authenticity. Please let us know which wine or whiskey barrel stave you would like for your custom pen.

 

Monticello Rye Distillery This advertisement for The Monticello Distilling Co. of Baltimore, MD was featured on page 984 of the Baltimore City Directory for 1894.

MONTICELLO RYE WHISKEY DISTILLERY

 

 

These pen blanks were cut from boards from the Monticello Rye Whiskey Distillery in Maryland.  This distillery was established in Baltimore, Maryland in 1789 and was originally called The Monticello Distilling Company and was the first commercial distillery built in Maryland.  The distillery was built from virgin long-leaf yellow pine.  The best estimate is that these trees were approximately 400 years old when they were harvested when the distillery was built.

 

We have been fortunate to obtain some of this historic lumber (re-sawn from beams that were reclaimed from the distillery) and are offering it for our pens.  This is very old heart pine that is extremely dense. 

 

Please contact us with your pen requirements and we will be happy to provide a quotation.

ROUTE 66 MOTEL PENS

Route 66   

 

U.S. Highway 66, popularly known as "Route 66," is significant as the nation's first all-weather highway linking Chicago to Los Angeles. When contrasted with transcontinental corridors such as the Lincoln Highway and U.S. Highway 40, Route 66 does not stand out as America's oldest or longest road. Nevertheless, what sets this segment of national highway apart from its contemporaries is that it remains the shortest, year-round route between the Midwest and the Pacific Coast. U.S. Highway 66 reduced the distance between Chicago and Los Angeles by more than 200 miles, which made Route 66 popular among thousands of motorists who drove west in subsequent decades.

 

Perhaps more than any other American highway, Route 66 symbolized the new optimism that pervaded the Nation’s postwar economic recovery. For thousands of returning American servicemen and their families, Route 66 represented more than just another highway. "It became," according to one contemporary admirer, "an icon of free-spirited independence linking the United States across the Rocky Mountain divide to the Pacific Ocean." In recent years Route 66 imaginatively documented in prose, song, film, and television has come to represent the essence of the American highway culture to countless motorists who traversed its course during the more than fifty years of its lifetime.

 

Route 66 Motel ROUTE 66 MOTEL - SINCE 1922 - BARSTOW, CA

The Route 66 Motel is located on historic Route 66, with round beds and a collection of vintage cars. The Route 66 Motel offers guests a fun blast of nostalgia along with modern.  Although it's classic Route 66 on the outside — down to the neon sign — this two-story motel is updated on the inside. Route 66 aficionados get a thrill from the motel's collection of antique cars and other memorabilia from the glory days of America's Mother Road.

Wooden Ladders

 

“We Build The Ladders By Which We Climb” – Motto of the San Francisco Fire Department’s Ladder shop.

Rich in tradition, the San Francisco Fire Department is one of a handful of Fire Departments nationwide that still uses wooden ladders. SFFD is, however, the only Fire Department that uses custom built, handcrafted wooden ladders. City workers build and restore the 350 wooden ladders used by the San Francisco firefighters in a city fabrication shop located in the Bayview district of San Francisco. They have been doing this since 1917.


San Francisco has many high-voltage overhead wires. Wooden ladders are preferred because they don't conduct electricity. Crafted from aged ash, Douglas fir and hickory woods, these ladders are sturdier and last longer.

The largest ladder made by the artisans is 50 feet, weighs 350 pounds and takes six firefighters to lift. Raising of the 50ft. wooden ladder, an art in and of itself, is done frequently as firefighters respond to many fire calls each day.

 

We have enough wood for just one pen.  Please fill out the form below for a quotation for your one-of-a-kind pen.  The perfect gift for someone serving in a fire department.

GHIRARDELLI SQUARE PENS

GHIRARDELLI SQUARE GHIRARDELLI SQUARE AT NIGHT

The oldest buildings in San Francisco’s Ghirardelli Square were already standing in 1893 when Domingo Ghirardelli’s sons purchased the entire block of property to use as the headquarters for their father’s successful chocolate business. From 1899 to 1915 the Ghirardelli family continued to add four more buildings; the Chocolate Building, the Cocoa Building, the Clock Tower, and the Power House. In the 1960’s when the Chocolate Company was sold, the prominent Mrs. William P. Roth and her son bought the factory property and restored many of the original buildings to create the tourist attraction that we recognize today. As the Square has undergone more changes in the past few years to make way for such things as seismic upgrades, luxury time-share apartments, and a wine tasting area, In 1982 Ghirardelli Square was inducted to the National Register of Historic Places. Tuscany Pens has been fortunate to receive some of the original beams from the restoration.

CRIBARI WINERY - FRESNO CIRCA 1918 PENS

CRIBARI CELLARS CRIBARI CELLARS
CRIBARI CELLARS CRIBARI WINERY DECONSTRUCTION, 2005

Beginning operations in 1904, the “House of Cribari,” winery is nationally known for a large variety of quality table wines, sparkling; aperitif and dessert wines; alter wines and vermouths.

Benjamin Cribari, the founder, first immigrated to America in 1899 from Cosenza, Italy. In 1903 the family moved from Colorado to California and the next year acquired forty acres of land in Paradise Valley, in the foothills of southern Santa Clara County where the first vines were planted.

During Prohibition the family business expanded through the sale of sacramental and medicinal wines; and the selling of grapes to individuals making their own wine. Expansion lead to acquiring, among other holdings, a Fresno winery: the famed, “Las Palmas Vineyard,” originally founded in the early eighteen nineties by Benjamin R. Woodworth.

In 2005, demolition of the Las Palmas building began and we have acquired some choice pen blanks from lumber from structures dating back almost 100 years.

 

The perfect gift for the wine connoisseur or history buff!

HISTORIC SAILING SHIPS - OVER 100 YEARS OLD

HISTORIC SAILING SHIP - THEN & NOW HISTORIC SAILING SHIP - THEN & NOW

We have some pen blanks that were cut from large timbers that were being sailed from Washington to England in 1909.  These timbers were to be used to build ships for the Queen’s navy. The timbers are stamped HRM, (Her Royal Majesty).

 

A storm hit off Grays Harbor, Washington and ship and cargo went down. These timbers were underwater for 90 years before they broke free, floated to the surface and washed ashore. Some farmers pulled them to safety with tractors.

 

The material is straight and grayed. Knots are small and far between. It is very heavy due to the fact that the already green wet timber in 1909 was underwater for 90 years.  This is awesome material.

USS CORAL SEA USS CORAL SEA

USS CORAL SEA

 

USS Coral Sea (CV 43) – The Ageless Warrior, the last Midway class carrier to be completed, served from 1947 to 1989. The most modern carrier in the fleet when completed, she was soon made obsolete by jet aircraft and was reconstructed in 1957-60 to enable her to operate the largest aircraft then in service. She never received another major rebuild, but served on through countless wars, conflicts and "hot spots' until her advancing age and the end of the Cold War sealed her fate.

 

We have enough wood for just one pen.

USS HAYLER USS HAYLER

It was later decommissioned on 25 August 2003.  This wood survives from a Plank Owner’s piece of the ship.  “The Plank Owner” is a title given to the first crew to serve aboard a ship and is a special honor in the eyes of those involved in maritime activities.

 

We have sufficient wood to make 6 pens.

CONNECTICUT CHARTER OAK TREE PEN

CONNECTICUT CHARTER OAK CONNECTICUT CHARTER OAK

Deep-rooted in the historic tradition of Connecticut, the Charter Oak (white oak) is one of the most colorful and significant symbols of the spiritual strength and love of freedom, which inspired our Colonial forebears in their militant resistance to tyranny. The Charter Oak was an unusually large , from around the 12th or 13th century until it fell during a storm in 1856, on what the English colonists named Wyllys Hyll, in Hartford, Connecticut. According to tradition, Connecticut's Royal Charter of 1662 was hidden within the hollow of the tree to thwart its confiscation by the English governor-general. The oak became a symbol of American independence and is commemorated on the Connecticut State Quarter.  

 

We have enough wood to make only one pen.

ROBERT FROST "TREE AT MY WINDOW" PEN

ROBERT FROST FARM - "TREE AT MY WINDOW" ROBERT FROST FARM - "TREE AT MY WINDOW"

While living at his farm in Derry, New Hampshire, famed American poet Robert Frost was inspired by a maple tree outside his window to write the following poem:

 

 

 

 

 

TREE AT MY WINDOW

Tree at my window, window tree,

My sash is lowered when night comes on;

But let there never be curtain drawn between you and me.

Vague dream head lifted out of the ground,

And thing next most diffuse to cloud,

Not all your light tongues talking aloud Could be profound.

But tree, I have seen you taken and tossed,

And if you have seen me when I slept,

You have seen me when I was taken and swept And all but lost.

That day she put our heads together,  

Fate had her imagination about her,

Your head so much concerned with outer,  

Mine with inner, weather.

 

We have obtained some of this historic wood from the Maple Tree Event in 2007 and have sufficient wood to make 6 pens.  This is the perfect gift for Robert Frost fans, English and literature teachers, or anyone that appreciates historic wood.

GENERAL STONEWALL JACKSON PRAYER TREE

STONEWALL JACKSON PRAYER TREE STONEWALL JACKSON PRAYER TREE

According to local lore, Confederate General Thomas J. “Stonewall” Jackson used to pray under the tree during his spring 1862 encampment near Middle River in June 1862, after the Shenandoah Valley campaign His army of 15,000 men rested after nearly six weeks of hard marching and fighting that resulted in Confederate military victories at McDowell, Front Royal, Winchester, Cross Keys and Port Republic. Hence the name of “Jackson’s Prayer Tree.”

The tree was estimated to be over 300 years old at the time it fell. Ironically, this giant white oak that became known because of a Southern General, toppled over to the North.

The plant was shut down in November 2002.

BOG OAK PEN BLANKS BOG OAK PEN BLANKS

BOG OAK PENS

 

We have been fortunate to obtain some bog Oak pen blanks from The Fens in England.  This wood is between 4,000 to 6,000 years old.  Thousands of years ago this wood was buried in peat bogs, which preserved them from decay.  Its dark brown/black color is the effect of the tannins in acidic water, which stains the wood.  This wood is in the earliest stages of fossilization.  If left untouched for millions of years, it would form into coal.

PARIS, MO COVERED BRIDGE PARIS, MO COVERED BRIDGE

Paris, Missouri Covered Bridge

 

We were lucky to get some of the original wood from the covered bridge at Paris, Missouri.  The Covered Bridge was built in 1857 over Middle Fork of Salt River.  The builders were Joseph C. Elliot and son William B. Elliot.  The bridge was a narrow Burr Arch structure, 100 feet long.  Roy Power restored the bridge in June 1952, and a strict weight and vehicle restriction was placed on it.  In August 1958 the bridge was swept away by floodwaters.  Present bridge rests partly on stone foundation of the old bridge.
