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 first quarter of the 19th century
Item # C104049 

A good pair of Directoire period brass candlesticks circa the first quarter of the 19th century, they exhibit separately formed candle wells that remove from the stem over a ring-turned cup and tapered baluster with incised and pressed details over a stepped-out cove-molded footer. Both retain a warm oxidized surface patina and present beautifully.

Measurements: 10 5/8" H x 5 5/16" diameter (base)

Condition Report:
Surfaces oxidized and left with an overall natural patina; bases ever-so-slightly "out of the round"; seam visibility in the cup; overall good condition.
