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.

Northern European, circa late 19th century
Item # 307PMQ13Q 

Featuring a rectangular elongated form of gilded molded-gesso borders of anthemion, acanthus and bead-and-dart motif with painted grounds embellished at each corner by bas-relief lion's heads around an upper central gilded ovular panel depicting a classically dressed woman standing between two lions, her hand outstretched to pet one on the head. The early bevelled edge mirror shows only minor silvering losses. The bottom panel of the frame features a bas-relief framed motif of sea creatures morphing into scrolling acanthus. It is beautifully decorated while still remaining austere and restrained.
