Handcrafted Witness Wood® Pens

H.S. Cullen Signature Series

The H.S. Cullen Signature Series is a Joint Venture between History Salvaged, LLC and renown artisan Tim Cullen with the express purpose of creating an exclusive BRAND of handcrafted one-of-a-kind Pens, Rings, Jewelry and/or other items featuring Historic and Cultural Witness Wood® owned and acquired by History Salvaged, LLC and conceptualized, designed and crafted by Tim Cullen.

Tim Cullen is considered one of the premier artisan pen crafters in America whose talents include not only woodworking, metal work, hand engraving and more, but Tim's talents in design and the combining various media in his work is second to none.
The H.S. Cullen Signature Series is modeled to be a very exclusive one-of-a-kind series of items. Although there may be an assortment of items for any one particular Witness Wood®, each piece create by Tim will be unique unto itself, beyond, the texture, grain and other features of the Witness Wood® or other materials Tim uses to craft each creation.

Besides individual pieces, we are currently developing several series of pens: an Independence Hall Collection, World War II Collection, Abraham Lincoln Collection, Civil War Collection, Ships of the World Collection, Presidents Collection among others. Our thoughts for example, are to create an Independence Hall Collection of at least 13 Pens, one for each of the original Colonies/States. Although each will contain Independence Hall Witness Wood®, the concept, design and creation will be solely at the description of Tim Cullen. Tim may decide to incorporate an antique Cebloplast, a period nail, musket shot, possibly hand engrave an image or come up with something else specific to each pen he creates. Although the 13 piece collection will be, just that a collection, they may all look very similar or be as different as each of the State's flags, depending on how Tim conceptualizes and interprets each piece.

Please feel free to contact us directly at Bob@HistorySalvaged.com should you have an interest in a H.S. Cullen one-of-a-kind work.
