Sundown Social Auction: 180 Years and Countin
Designed and handcrafted by Peter Emerson are several items that are treasures to be passed on for generations. A copper platter depicting Independence Hall, the humble building where 180 years ago, 59 brave men signed the Texas Declaration of Independence and changed the course of history. Hand carved in wood, this cutting board, celebrates that event, too.
