Is somebody know anything about Elliot London lens manufacturer? I tried google but found EllioTT Bros only. As I can estimate this is RR design.

Thanks for any help.

Elliott & Bros were originally Elliott & Sons who were high class scientific instrument sellers based in London. They were Bros at the period of the RR with waterhouse stops. Unless you have the name with address it will be impossible to find the "Elliot" shop. Definitely the name of the shop who sold it - there is no maker of this name and there is no tradition of owners engraving their name. This is an experienced professional engraver.
