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.

Probably English, circa first quarter of the 20th century
Item # 403DWS18A 

A great pair of substantial columns, they are executed in pine that has been painted in whites and grays to create a sense of Carrara marble. The overall form is Neoclassical with a bold cove molding around the top and an overall faceted and almost square column over a simple base molding in the footer. Powerful and intended for placement against a wall, as the back is left open. A very nice pair that would look positively brilliant with matched statuary or urns filled with flowers on top. England, circa the first quarter of the 20th century.

Measurements: 57 1/4" H x 22 1/2" D x 26 1/2" W

Condition Report:
Apparently original surface throughout, heavily worn and with blemishes; a nice overall patina; chipping and splitting to the wood in various places throughout - all of these can be easily repaired, though it looks quite natural in the worn aesthetic; very strong and stable; ready to place.
