Wyvern Envoy

early 1950s

This pen is a Wyvern Envoy, from 1949/early 1950s, in what Wyvern called “Copper Rose”.  The Envoy is rarely seen in this pattern; most were black. This pen is a real beauty, shiny, without blemish, and still stickered!  Although stickered, it has been used; there was ink in the feed and in the replaced sac. The trim is missing a bit of plating, the thinness of which was well-known in Wyverns. It is also unusual that the clip carries the Leicester Dragon for which the brand is named.  The nib, true to the sticker, is a semi-flexible broad, and writes beautifully.  Although perhaps not England’s best or best-known brand, Wyvern did make some great writers, and this is clearly one!
