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.

We are accepting consignments of fine art, bronze sculpture, marble sculpture and rare decorative arts.

We actively market tangible art assets on a consignment basis as a service for our clients. Our rates are very competitive and will vary based on your prior relationship with the gallery as well as the quantity and value of items being consigned. Obviously our goal is always to build a long term relationship with our clients, both in constructing a world-class collection and in upgrading or downsizing that collection.

Our marketing strategy is well-diversified, with consigned objects always on display by appointment during business hours in our brick-and-mortar retail gallery and amplified to non-local clients on our gallery website, our collector newsletter, Ruby Lane, eBay, Etsy, Chairish, Vinterior and 1stdibs.

Your only responsibility as a consignor is arranging safe delivery of the objects to the shop, usually using your local UPS Store or pack-and-ship facility. Once safely received at the shop, we handle every aspect of the sale: authentication, arranging any necessary restoration, photography, research and cataloging, price negotiations, sales inquiries, secure payment processing and shipment/delivery.

If you would like to talk about your consignment, email or call the shop at (717) 708-9017 to discuss whether we would be a good fit for marketing your collection.
