These WHITE HOUSE Pens are part of a Collection created from Witness Wood® acquired by History Salvaged that was removed and made available to the public following the 1927 and the 1950 renovations of the White House, home to every US President since 1800.
In 1927, Calvin Coolidge, tired of the leaky roof, had the attic space expanded into a full third floor by constructing a steel-frame story atop the brick-and-mortar walls of 1800. According to the Army Corps of Engineers report, the added weight contributed to the failure of the structure by 1949, prompting our 33rd President, Harry Truman to renovate the entire building, in what has become known as the 1950 Truman Reconstruction.
During both the 1927 and 1950 reconstructions, the US Government sold limited quantities of "mementos" to the public to help support funding of the work. History Salvaged has spent more than 10 years scouring public and private collections, museums and fraternal organizations to acquire enough Witness Wood® to produce this White House Signature Series Collection, produced from Mid-Atlantic Heart Pine removed during the 1950 Truman Reconstruction.
The White House Pen uses standard Schmidt rollerball refills.
All pens are handcrafted by or under the supervision of our Master Pen Craftsman and are made in America.
Each is individually handmade and each varies in look and feel.
All History Salvaged product is guaranteed authentic and made utilizing the wood describe and in conjunction with our partner clients. Certificate of Authenticity and Custom Tamperproof Hologram
