SILLA, ltd. was born out of a passion for beautiful objects: special pieces with aesthetic and historical significance. In 2009, after many years of collecting, Andrew Silla and his wife Grace began offering their finds to clients by appointment from their residence in Southern Maryland. Quickly outgrowing their 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 French bronze 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.
We are passionate about fine furniture from the whole spectrum of periods ranging from the late 18th century through the middle of the 20th century. Our interests lie primarily in original pieces that remain in pristine condition, perhaps having unusual form or other attributes that make them stand-alone strikepoints for the room. We love items created by interesting designers and makers.
The common thread in all of our objects is the unwavering standard of quality, originality and excellence in form. Each object is individually curated and selected for these attributes, restored as minimally as possible in a way that carefully balances purity against a clean presentation in today’s home.
Because shipping throughout the country is such an important part of our business, we have a fully equipped packing facility in-house, allowing our staff to professionally and thoughtfully package every piece for shipment to you.
We guarantee the safe arrival of any shipment arranged by SILLA, ltd., allowing you to rest assured that your new purchase is entirely risk-free.
While the vast majority of items are owned by the gallery, we do consignment services for clients looking to upgrade or downsize their collections. We are always accepting exceptional paintings, bronzes, or fine and unusual jewelry.
We are always excited to work with new clients both in-person at the gallery and virtually over a distance. The vast majority of our business occurs well beyond our physical building and we are happy to do whatever it takes to make your experience as cohesive from a distance as it is in person. We are always happy to jump on Facetime and video chat about a specific piece so that you can see the intricacies and scale or ask any questions; additional video can also be provided for any item in the shop. Furthermore, we are always available by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) and during business hours by Live Chat on our site (see the lower right corner on most browsers).
If you would like to visit the gallery, all items are on display and can be viewed by appointment. Simply email email@example.com to set up an appointment during business hours (M-F 9a-5p EST) and one of our staff will be pleased to show you around.
