    Hezekiah King is list in the New York City directory beginning in 1857 at 86 John St. In 1865 the listing was H. & J. W. King "importers of English hardware, cutlery and guns" at 51 Beekman St. By 1869 they had moved to 92 Beekman St. In 1876 they also had an office at 80 Chambers St.

    Whoa another stunner, great work Karl. As always super tight and clean I love the bone scales and glaze finish. Thanks for sharing.
