Koning & Zn., located at Albatrosstraat 2-3 in Nieuwe Pekela from 1920 to approximately 1971. Unfortunately, the company disappeared in 1971 due to financial challenges, and a few years later, the once proud factory buildings were demolished.
This vintage tin is in good condition, with signs of use and wear testifying to its rich history.
