Pen Model: Esterbrook Pastels
Esterbrook Pastel pens were made during the 1950’s, and are actually J family pens. They came in a range of colors that included lilac, pink, peach, blue, mint green, a putty color, and white, perhaps others. Designed for ladies’ purses, they came in plastic cases and are slightly smaller than the SJ, 4 ⅜” versus the SJ’s 4 ¾”. There were also two generations, the first with J-like black jewels, and later ones in colors that matched the pens. Take a bit of care with Pastels; they’re made of softer plastic and wear very easily. In addition, they often appear with cracking at the cap or barrel edges.
