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.

England, circa early 19th century | fantastic proportions, only 10 1/2" in total depth
Item # 209FEP28A 

This lovely early 19th century Regency chiffonier cabinet features a rosewood veneer over all primary surfaces and is hung with original bronze mounts throughout. The pair of locking doors feature original latticework brass grillwork and they open to reveal an upholstered interior with two fixed shelves. The top raises an upper shelf on turned pillars, the rosewood shelf with a pierced bronze gallery surrounding the back and sides. A simple piece with clean angular lines, it is of incredibly convenient proportions. By being only 10 1/2" in total depth, it fits comfortably even in narrow hallways or small entryways. The rich and beautifully patinated rosewood is mellowed and shows wonderful age throughout.

Measurements: 46 1/2" H x 10 1/2" D x 47" W
