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.

We take a great deal of pride at silla in offering a curated selection of treasures and it is only natural that these historical objects could be enjoyed by much broader audiences through prop rental to the film and theatre industry.We offer a large inventory of over 500 carefully curated and catalogued Vintage and Antique Furniture, Sculpture, Fine Art, Decorative Arts, and Rugs available at flexible daily, weekly and monthly rates. This extensive collection provides a unique and authentic touch to any production, enhancing the visual storytelling experience. As a dealer to the collector market, silla is not traditionally a "prop rental house", which means you will find the quality, condition and rarity are of a superior grade, are ready-to-place and truly raise the bar of any period set.

Our Film and Theatre Industry Services Include:

  • Daily, weekly and monthly rental of vintage furniture, antique furniture from the 18th through 21st centuries, fine art, sculpture and rugs
  • Convenient in-house delivery options to New York City, Washington D.C. and Baltimore. Speedy LTL freight options available to meet even the tightest of schedules.
  • The possibility of purchase of unwanted props - contact us with details on specific items for fast purchase quotes.
