Founded in the UK city of Leicester, where their factory was in Woodboy Street,
the Wyvern Pen Company took its name from the winged two-legged dragon with a
barbed tail that appears in the coat-of-arms of the city.
Production at the Vulcanite Works began as far back as 1896 and continued
until the demise of the company in 1955.
They made a wide variety of models (and also manufactured nibs for other pen companies)
and today they are still as durable as when they were new, and a pleasure to use and own.
