Named Person: John Jr Elliott
Material Type: Manuscript, Internet resource
Document Type: Book, Archival Material, Internet Resource
All Authors / Contributors: John Sr Elliott
OCLC Number: 770379201
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.
