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.

INCREDIBLY FINE PAIR OF 22K GILTWOOD "GRAHAM 607" MIRRORS BY DESSIN FOURNIR
Designer net pricing of $ 16,780/each with Dessin Fournir | formerly with Christie's, New York in 2008 (achieved $ 18,750)
Item # 312GXP07S 

An extremely fine pair of mirrors by Dessin Fournir (the Graham 607) are remarkable modernist works that are currently still available through their showrooms in slightly different dimensions (the smaller 42" W x 66" H offered at a designer net of $ 16,780 each). This pair was formerly with Christie's and was offered at their October 7th 2008 sale of "European Furniture, Works of Art, and Tapestries: Including Jansen: The Past Reimagined" in New York City (lot 171, achieved $ 18,750). Both retain labels on the reverse from the Christie's sale but are unmarked from Dessin Fournir.

The surfaces are positively exquisite, the octagonal multi-layered reeding finished in 22k gilding around recessed smoky mirrored glass in an "antique" finish. It is difficult to describe how striking the mirrors are in person, being both of substantial proportions that make an immediate impression in the interior.


Measurements: 63 1/8" H x 38" W

Condition Report:
Very fine condition. Distressed giltwood with minor wear and chips. Antique'd smoky glass.
