John Sr Elliott
|Notes:||"Wallnut Street" label, the 3rd type Elliott used in Philadelphia.
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.

As of 1965, this piece was owned by the Hunter House in Newport, R. I.
