I suppose it depends on where you live, but I wouldn't have called Gamba a rare brand till I lived here in Canada and now Freeds are a rare brand here too :(
You could add Gandolfi to your list though I think Mr Gandolfi still has his shop on Marylebone Road in London, but that is the only shop they're sold in.

Why are you looking for some of these rare brands? Selva has been out of business for years, iirc, taken over by Bloch (but my memory may be incorrect).

I have my first ever pointe shoes hanging up in my practice room - Selva's. They're more than thirty years old. I wouldn't let them go, of course, not that they are wearable, either! LOL! They're hardly recognizable as anything, anymore, actually. Where I was, we had to make shoes last so they're covered with all sorts of gunk (in the age before jet-glue!).
