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.

Figural Lamp of a Woman Holding a Lamp

Patinated bronze figure, brass candlestick, marble base | Signed verso "J. LORMIER" | circa 1930

Item # 208YIJ18K 

A very finely cast bronze figural lamp modeled by Jean Lormier, it features a stylized female with crisply cast fingers and toes, her stylized hair swirling around the features of her face while her eyes are locked on the lamp raised in the palms of her hand. She is finished in an old silvered finish while a draped garment cast over her shoulder cascades before and behind her, this finished in an overall dark brown chemical patination. The lamp originally would have been covered in a frosted glass shade, this since lost; we had our in-house metalsmith fabricate a solid bronze candle well, threaded to match the original threads of the light and left in a high-polish untouched surface.

The reverse of the garment is signed "J. LORMIER". An incredibly fine Deco period model.
