3 English 19th C Antique Military Campaign Trunks

MILES GRIFFITHS ANTIQUES
Three English 19th C Antique Military Campaign Travelling Trunks

This is a wonderful set of three, large antique military travelling boxes, one in camphor wood and two in pine. All three are in the original finish and they all have interesting paper labels that relate to the owners. Such as the metal bound camphor box and a pine version that were owned by Colonol S.T.Polley ( Sydney Trepess Polley) who was in the Indian Army and became a major. Another box was owned by Lietenant Colonol L.G. Fischer I.M.S (medical core) in the Indian Army. Interestingly, Sydney Polley went on to marry Fischer's sister Nora in 1915, in her married name Nora Polley, she went on to be the first female to represent India in the 1924 Summer Olympics in Tennis! Two of these antique military boxes have the original tin metal liners with iron carrying handles to each end. All three of these interesting antique military boxes are in very good condition and all totally original.

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.

Now in its 25th year, Miles Griffiths Antiques is a friendly, family run company with Miles’ wife Rebecca, cousin Emily and good friends, Mark and Simon on board.

Miles and Rebecca’s children, Maisie and Sandy often help out in the holidays.

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.
