COLUMBUS CARAVEL SHIP PENCIL TRAY

This colorful, pencil tray features a portion of an N.C. Wyeth painting from his series "Romance of Discovery" that depicts the Columbus' caravel ship sailing toward the New World. The murals in Wyeth's series were commissioned by the National Geographic Society in 1926 to hang in Hubbard Memorial Hall, the Society's first formal library, where they are still exhibited today.
