John Sr Elliott
|Notes:||Labeled with Elliott's Chestnut Street label, the earliest of his Philadelphia labels.
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.
For more information, see Mary Ellen Hayward, "The Elliotts of Philadelphia," M.A. thesis, University of Delaware (Newark), 1971 (copy available in Visual Resources Department).
In the collection of Colonial Williamsburg (1930-96).
