John Sr Elliott
|Notes:||Chestnut Street label with "Walnut" super-inscribed on "Chestnut" indicates that it dates from the period shortly after Elliott's 1762 move.
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.
