Biography: From it's humble beginnings, Belrose Galleries a family-owned business established in 1967 on the world famous Boardwalk in Atlantic City, NJ by the late Rose & Tiny Schweke. Belrose Galleries is still in operation on the Boardwalk, filled with antiques, objet d'art, estate jewelry, furniture, porcelain & linens, holding weekly auctions.
Their son Joe, raised amongst such opulence, developed a keen eye for decorative arts & jewelry, often accompanying his parents on trips the world over. At the age of 19, while living in California, he was called upon to run the business full-time, becoming the buyer, appraiser & manager of the gallery for the next 30 years. Along the way, Joe met his future wife Robin and raised their five children on the South Jersey shore.
Upon returning to Santa Barbara in 2007, Joe opened Bella Rosa Galleries on State Street, continuing the family legacy. Personal service, warmth & hospitality await you at Bella Rosa Galleries. Come in as a client, leave as a friend. Joe and the staff of Bella Rosa Galleries take great pride in helping people select items marking special milestones in their lives which they treasure forever.
