Essex Gun Works was a trade name sold by Belknap Hardware, Louisville, KY. The guns were manufactured by Crescent, Crescent-Davis, Stevens, and possibly others. Personally, I think these old trade-named doubles are worth $125-$150 in Good - Very Good condition plus maybe 50% for a 410. Some others seem to disagree and quote values about twice that with a 100% premium for the small *****.
