About us

silla was born out of a passion for beautiful objects: special pieces with aesthetic and historical significance. In 2009, after years of collecting, Andrew Silla and his wife Grace began to work privately with clients from their residence in Southern Maryland. Quickly outgrowing the space, the business was moved from Maryland to Pennsylvania in 2012 and after several warehouse location changes it was firmly settled in the present brick-and-mortar location in downtown Shippensburg.

The 9000 square foot brick-and-mortar gallery is home to a large collection of works of art and estate jewelry. We specialize in sculpture circa 1860 through 1930 with a particular emphasis on the Animaliers and as such the gallery always has a very large collection of exceptional European and American sculpture available on display.

DUTCH BAROQUE REVIVAL CHEST OF DRAWERS
Circa 19th century
Item # 209PFT16A 

A very attractive Dutch chest of drawers in the Baroque taste, it is a product of the 19th century with early and probably original cast brasses. All surfaces have a wonderful reddish hue and a lovely all-over glow from years of waxing and polishing. The facade is a delightful and rather complex scalloped form with a undulating top that conforms to the facade of the chest on the front and carries that same design around the sides. The skirting on the front projects the same waves and curves both outward and downward. The drawers move easily in and out of the case and it remains as practical and useful today as it was when it was originally made.


Measurements: 31 3/4" H x 19 1/2" D x 34" W

Condition Report:
