Rococo Mirror and Window Drapery Cornices By Elijah Galusha
All of the furniture that I have presented and will present in this series by Elijah Galusha are original to 59 Second Street in Troy, NY; the current home of Rensselaer Historical Society.
The images below present a Rococo mirror and it’s matching drapery cornices supplied by Galusha in 1851. He not only made furniture “in all the different kinds of wood” but also manufactured “mirror cornices, picture frames, and every description of gilt work!”, according to an 1865 receipt.
