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.

Stalking Panther

Patinated bronze | Signed to base "SCHADE", foundry marking cold-stamped to edge "Lauchhammer Bildguss" | cast circa 1920s

Item # 303LNW16P 

A distinctly Art Deco modeling of a Stalking Panther with an overall mechanistic aesthetic, the sleek cat has been reduced to its most essential elements, almost an image of the shadow he produces as he plods along across the plane. Finished in a translucent dark-brown patina with a host of other very subtle hues coming through the surface, it positively glows. The austere base is signed SCHADE and is foundry sealed along the vertical edge.

Measurements: 10 3/8" W x 4 1/2" H x 2 7/8" D

Condition Report:
Original patina in well-preserved condition with light handling wear along the ridges of his back, tips of ears and ribs. Tail with a visible roman pin - tail joint was tightened with a tiny filled hole along the lower edge of the seam (barely visible). Cleaned and polished, a fine presentation.
