Galusha Mahogany Secretary
To continue to fill out my online collection of Elijah Galusha furniture photographs, this secretary is another known Elijah Galusha piece in residence at the Rensselaer Historical Society in Troy, NY. I’m assuming 1835-1850-ishdate for this piece. The pulls are replacements unfortunately, so don’t be distracted by their later date.
Galusha seemed to enjoy incorporating ripple moulding on his pieces and this is another of those examples with it trimming out the door panels.
As a side project, I’m assembling all the Galusha furniture images into a loose online reference here for all posterity. More of this secretary below.
