Grey Herman Miller Vintage Original Eames RAR Rocking Arm Shell Chair
An excellent example of a used, original vintage Grey Herman Miller Eames arm shell, on a very stable and natural walnut wood RAR rocking base. This rare beauty not only has the desirable fibrous details, but it is also a versatile colour that will suit many interiors, a perfect rocking chair.
Herman Miller moved production of the Eames shells to its Venice factory when they bought out Zenith Plastics to combine the financial and production means of creating the iconic shells. The factory soon became the Eames’s own workshop, producing many various artistic pieces including the Powers of Ten film. Ultimately, this rocking arm shell chair is an eccentric, timeless piece that is highly sought after.
This vintage grey rocking chair is in excellent condition despite its age, with signs of usage and some marks. The colour is still very much in top condition, with slight fading consistent with its age and usage. Further images are available upon request.
The newer used walnut RAR base is very sturdy and stable and will support your weight when rocking. Further images are available upon request.
The later Cincinnati Milacron "C" stamp suggests that it is manufactured between 1965-1978.
The Eames’s work is highly coveted. From their artwork to their furniture, their work attracts interest from everywhere. The shells are a great investment piece, especially vintage ones. Like many things, their age, factory of origin and even colour can affect the shells’ value. This Grey fibreglass RAR rocking chair is considered as highly desirable and an incredible valuable investment piece that will only increase in value.
