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 1940s
Item # 403LVB18M 

An exuberant design from the Hollywood Regency era, this fine low coffee table showcases a perfect blend of a subdued elegance and personality. The top is a stunning display of eclectic polychromed motifs with rich incised outlines and details throughout, the rich surface being chaotic and asymmetrical in its exquisite artwork.

The dark ground is full of swirling vines and foliage around beautifully detailed blooming flowers, the total darkness of the surrounding making the painted panels absolutely pop in the interior. These panels feature like something from a dreamscape with bugs, odd shapes, geometric forms and a trio of organic vessels on the bottom, all surrounding the primary central motif of two floral bouquets, one in a large swollen baluster vase and one in a low planter.

The table itself is a perfect compliment to the top, the wonderful giltwood worn through to reveal the red bole underlying the gold and below that the burnished gesso. It is simple and most pleasing with an undulating skirt and shell forms in the center of each side raised on undulating legs of a more typical cabriole form with bold knees.

Highly individual and well considered, the table is a perfect balance of art and function - a canvas that is meant to be lived with and touched.
