Pear wood finishes easily with ordinary oil base stains or waterbase stains. You could use aniline dye in alcohol (methanol), or waterbased dyes. You could just use a pure oil finish, but that doesn't offer much protection.

As for topcoats, you could use any of the film type finishes...shellac, oil base varnish, oil base polyurethane, lacquer, conversion varnish, waterbase polyurethane.
