Johanna Erna Else Schröder (known as Han Schröder) lived in the  in Utrecht, the Netherlands, together with her mother, Truus  Schröder- Schrader who was also an interior decorator. The house was designed in 1924 by Gerrit Thomas Rietveld who became a friend of Schröder’s and an important influence on her future work. While a teenager, she worked on furniture design with both Rietveld and with Gerard van de Groenekan. In 1936, she attended the  Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich Switzerland, graduating as an architect in 1940.

This small De Stijl / Art Deco / Modernist shelving unit was previously owned by Han Schroeder /Schröder. After the death of Han the family auctioned off her belongings including this table. It is possibly a Gerrit Rietveld design – although a definite attribution can not be given.
