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.

As a PowerSeller on eBay, we have completed well over $1m in sales on eBay with impeccable feedback. Moreover, eBay offers the "eBay Money Back Guarantee", allowing you to be guaranteed the item you purchase will arrive exactly as described by us or your money back. We can generally offer the "best price" in our gallery to our eBay clients as well, so it is an excellent platform for completing a purchase - furthermore, all images for an object are usually available in the custom templates, making for an excellent viewing experience.

With a vast majority of our inventory represented on Ruby Lane, you likewise have the protections of a third-party review to ensure your purchase is exactly as described. Protections with Ruby Lane are not as clearly defined as eBay's, but they have a wonderful Customer Service department that ensures all dealers adhere to their guidelines.

As the most respected and exclusive of all high-end antiques channels, provides you with third-party resolution to ensure all of it's members adhere to their stringent guidelines. While only a portion of our inventory is represented on this channel, if it is an option you are most comfortable using for a purchase we can certainly add the respective object to our 1stdibs inventory for you to purchase. Please note that while there is price parity between the gallery and 1stdibs, we are not always able to offer the same level of discount or negotiated rate via the platform as we can over the phone or by email. Generally we recommend that if you found an item through our website, you should reach out directly versus going through the 1stdibs platform.

While Etsy is a platform generally reserved for handmade goods and more common vintage objects, we have found an active and loyal customer base on Etsy and have thoroughly enjoyed the clients we have met through the platform. We maintain a five-star rating through the interactions on the site and it is an excellent marketplace to shop through if you prefer viewing our items there. A few notes: 1) only a handful of images are represented on this platform, so be sure to always double check our gallery website for a more full understanding of the nuance of a piece, 2) viewing descriptions can be a bit tough so always be sure to gather all of the necessary information and full condition notes (or just head over to our gallery website) before making a decision and 3) prices are quoted higher to include an average expected delivery fee. You can usually find the best price by simply contacting us directly, but it is a very efficient platform if you already have a payment method stored there.
