The artwork was originally hand etched by Donna Ruprecht. She was born in Plymouth, Massachusetts and received her first art supplies for Christmas when she was third grade and was always loved the arts. She has worked for several scrimshaw companies in her artistic career.
Each letter opener is hand etched, and there will be some minor differences between each opener.
