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.

In the Louis XV taste | ca. late 19th century
Item # 403SHI18X 

A very large trumeau mirror in the Louis XV taste, the relatively austere form features a pearl painted ground against which the carved giltwood absolutely pops. The gilding is largely original and wonderfully oxidized, the tarnish and overall patina of the surface lending some needed surface history to the interior. Circa last quarter of the 19th century.

Measurements: 80" H x 44 3/4" W

Condition Report:
Heavily worn and oxidized throughout; white painted surface probably refreshed in the 20th century, still presenting with chips and discolorations; overall aged aesthetic; gilding tarnished with chipping and rubbing through the gilding to reveal the underlying red bole and white base; carvings with chipping and losses; mirror with smokiness and silvering losses; a fine presentation that is ready to place.
