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.

This fine George III peat bucket is of navette form with a vertically staved tapering to the body using solid mahogany slats locked together with a broad upper and lower band and thin double-banding in the center. A single handle with half-looped ends is affixed to the bucket via clasps on either side of the uppermost banding. The original brass lining is removable and remains in very good condition.

Measurements: 13 3/8" H x 10 7/8" D x 15 3/8" W

Condition Report:
Excellent condition with good surface color and overall patination; bands have loosened over time due to the natural shrinking of the wood. Minor dings, abrasions and scars as expected.
