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.

Circa mid-19th century
Item # 403YEN18P 

A lovely English chest of drawers with three full width graduated drawers hung with ovular stamped brass hardware raised over bracket feet with an inner curved profile. The chest has a chaotic glazed surface that was probably applied during the 20th century, the superb wear throughout and vivid autumnal color of the chest making it rather eye-catching. The drawers are all hand-dovetailed in the typical manner. The size is perfect - small enough that it doesn't overwhelm a room while large enough for great practical storage. Absolutely gorgeous.

Measurements: 30" H x 18 1/8" D x 33 5/8" W

Condition Report:
Later painted surface, probably 20th century; top drawer with shadows outlining the ovular pull being set in the center of the drawer; keyhole escutcheons missing; no key and locks untested; wear throughout, including light chips, discolorations and many blemishes; drawers work beautifully with smooth action in and out of the case; a great presentation, ready to place.
