Elijah Galusha Settee Photos

by John Werry on December 3, 2010

As I always say, one cannot have too many Elijah Galusha reference photos lying around for that emergency Rococo furniture identification that always pops up.  This set is from a Galusha settee at the Rensselaer Historical Society in Troy, NY that I haven’t put up yet.

He seems to have been fond of “reeding” his foliage and flower petals.  He also did not stick to one orientation or the other for the reeding on the foliage – it could go in either direction.  I’m also wondering if he ever touched a board of walnut for his Rococo work in his life.  I’ve not recalled a single documented piece done in walnut.

One more for the archives…

Still looks a lot like my walnut set.
