John Sr Elliott
|Notes:||Elliott was originally a cabinetmaker, but he didn't make looking glasses himself. Instead, he focused on importing, selling, and repairing them as part of his apothecary business. Because the looking glasses sold at his shop were labeled, they have been attributed to him.
DAPC folder contains a sample of spruce from the back of the frame.
