Galusha Rococo Revival Side Chair

by John Werry on June 14, 2007

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.

More on this chair attributed to Galusha which starts at $200 (range $400-$600) from Sloans & Kenyon:

NEW YORK ROCOCO REVIVAL SIDE CHAIR, 19th century, attributed to Galusha, Troy, NY, rosewood. Vigorously-carved floral festooned arching crest above open fretwork; padded cartouche backrest and conforming seat raised on saber legs and casters – 41 in. x 20 in. x 18 in.
