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.

The very essence of material culture is the statement it makes about our predecessors: how they lived, worked, ordered their lives and where they assigned their values.  Furniture has long been one of the most accessible forms of art, much of it created bespoke as a collaboration between the patron commissioning the piece and the craftsman executing it.  And much can be gathered and appreciated in examining these pieces within that framework.  

We do our best to acquire objects that have always been cared for, cherished and remain in as close to excellent condition as possible.  If possible, we order no restoration on furniture objects.  Each object is conserved as minimally as possible and polished for the best possible presentation in the home.
