Most Interesting ! I just spent a week with my brother and sister in
Manchester, NH. My wife has a ring box and ring that came from the
John B. Varick Company. The ring was purchased circa 1930 's by
my wife's godfather , and she inherited it, from her godmother along
with other items from the John B. Varick Company.
