Catalogue Note

This is the only looking glass known with the label of Stillman Lothrop of Salem. Two other objects bearing his label include a silk embroidery in a gilded frame and a white painted dressing table with an attached dressing box, which was probably purchased from John Doggett of Roxbury, Massachusetts. Lothrop served as an apprentice to John Doggett in 1803 and opened his own shop in Salem in 1804.
