HANDCRAFTED HISTORIC GIFTS
HMS Victory Statesman Fountain Pen
The vast majority of the materials we use are totally unique to us at Historic Gifts.

We spend a vast amount of time researching and sourcing new materials from all over the world and travel many a mile in researching and collecting new materials.
We have a specialist stabilising pressure system to help with the preserving and strengthening of the historic timbers that we come across and recently we have invested in a pressure injection resin system so all voids and splits in timbers can be repaired and preserved.
We have used these processes in the past on Aircraft Tyres to 300 year old rope found in the silt on the sea bed.
Our aim is to find those forgotten, unwanted, rotten or even broken pieces of history that sit in the loft or left outside to rot and bring them back into a useful and practical gift to cherish, but above all else, to preserve history.
Above is Mosquito KA114 which has now been fully restored in New Zealand and in 2012 became the first flying mosquito since 1996. Both wings had to be fully replaced and the original wings were left outside exposed to the elements for several years until we was contacted in 2018 and asked if we would be interested and over a period of nearly a year managed to import both wing sections of Spruce, Douglas Fir and hundreds of original Brass screws.
One of our proudest moments, was in July 2012 when we were commissioned by the Princes Trust to make a totally unique fountain pen for HRH Prince Charles and an unexpected meet with him afterwards to discuss our pens and praised our traditional unique approach.
You can be assured that each and every handcrafted Historic Gift we make comes with our personal assurance that you will receive a quality, unique, genuine gift to cherish.
