Rare Victorian - Galusha Rococo Revival Side Chair

Galusha Rococo Revival Side Chair


If you’re a fan of John Henry Belter, Alexander Roux and J & JW Meeks pieces and haven’t heard of Galusha, you should add that name to your shopping list. While his pieces weren’t quite as over-the-top carved as Belter and Meeks’ finest work, he clearly imitated the designs from his NY City competition (he was based in Troy, NY). His shop produced very fine Gothic and Rococo furniture until his death in 1871. For more detailed information on Galusha, see this article reprint here.
