1930's Rudolf Steiner School Desk Chair & Bookrest

MILES GRIFFITHS ANTIQUES
1930's Rudolf Steiner School Desk Chair & Book Rest

A very rare Steiner school oak desk, armchair and book rest. Full provenance known, made for a English Steiner School in 1930. Amazing furniture, made in the anthroposophic style that was wwweloped by Rudolf Steiner. Steiner designed amongst other things, school furniture and toys to be used within the schools. No hard lines here, only organic, natural shapes with an adzed finish. This Steiner School oak kneehole desk is in superb condition,featuring two open storage compartments, over two cupboard doors, all very original and even complete with the sliding shaped trays within the cupboards. The desk is also finished on that back so can stand away from the wall. In the original finish and with a lovely adzed finish to the surfaces. The Steiner desk armchair has a fabulous, shaped back rest, adzed finish all over, in great condition. Also with this Rudolf Steiner School desk and chair is the original book rest, again with the adzed finish, not fixed, free of the desk. This very rare anthroposophic oak furniture was used in the Headteachers room within the Steiner School. Just amazing design, super quality and in excellent condition.

Miles was born in 1970 and raised in a country house in Lancashire. Here, his parents’ eclectic interiors (his mum once famously painted the loo seat purple!) undoubtedly stoked his interest in antiques and design.

Trained yet bored by his textile design degree, Miles moved on and with his mum, established a local retail emporium. He supplied antique props for the shop floor, which gained interest and attention from members of the public.

This was the beginning of Miles Griffiths Antiques.

Opening his first antiques shop, Miles quickly gained a local fan club, he’d often return with his wares to find queues waiting for their next antiques fix. Later, having outgrown the shop, Miles dealt primarily with the antiques trade at fairs. This meant very early morning starts and he was soon travelling all over the country.

He established a following on the circuit as a reputable dealer with a superb eye for the decorative and unexpected.

Many of you will have met Miles’ faithful canine companions Alf and Sprout, who appear in many of the website images.

Miles deals mainly in English antiques from the 1700s to the best 20th century designers.
