Wearever Pioneer


With their sibling Pennants throughout the 1950s, Wearever Pioneers were ubiquitous drugstore pens, marketed at 50 cents each. In homage to the Parker 51, they featured a “hooded” nib made by an additional tab that partially covers the nib. It is in very clean red injection molded plastic with a metal cap that shows some wear; has a firm lever, Wearever’s signature clear plastic feed and writes a nice fine/medium line.

This Wilrite, from the 1920s, has the gold-filled overlay over bright yellow celluloid. The gold overlay is complete and very clean (the yellow of the pen makes the gold look silver in the photograph). The yellow celluloid shows some wear, but it is intact and complete. In addition, there is a small green end plug, most likely also celluloid. Nib is a tiny Peter Pan, which writes a nice fine/medium line with a little flex.

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!
