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.

France | circa 1930s
Item # 111LTW03P 

An innovative creation from the Art Deco period circa the 1930s, the cabinet was ingeniously designed to break down into manageable parts for ease of transit: the top, the upper frame, the doors, the box with drawers, the shelves, the sides and the backboards are all removable from the lower base, this also separating into two parts (upper and lower).

The facade is arranged with a pair of doors on the outside that swing outward to reveal a shelved interior; these flank a pair of inner doors that lock against eachother, the left side with a shelved space and the right side with a box of four stacked drawers with original chromed knobs. These are hand-dovetailed with white oak secondary woods.

An original key is retained and works the locks beautifully. The entire cabinet rests over a slightly crescent shaped footer. Massive in size at just over 118" in overall width, this most impressive burl-olivewood credenza is an absolute strike-point for the interior.

Measurements: 118 1/4" W x 20" D x 36 1/4" H

Condition Report:
A vibrant surface with good old finish, remaining clear and very attractive; veneer chips: far left corner of top, chip to back left foot, some "crushing" to the bottom edge of top (for the most part only noticeable when crouching), other minor veneer chips; retains one original working key; faint residual smoke odor - we have carefully cleaned the piece, but is worth noting if you are sensitive or plan to store odor sensitive goods in the cabinet.
