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 light grey Herman Miller Eames RAR arm shell chair is a vintage piece, which requires some maintenance work, but overall it is still in a very good condition. There are a few scratches and marks on the used shell, however, the newer, used, RAR base remains sturdy, making this a perfect rocking chair to add to your collection.
This chair has a double triangle stamp, which means that it is produced around 1959- 1962.
Eames shell chairs’ investment values vary accordingly to the condition, the rarity of the colours, the stamps and logo imprinted onto the chair and the production of the base. The stamps found underneath the seat implies that this Herman Miller Eames arm shell is an older generation, as well as the beautiful nude grey colour overall, makes this chair a worth-while investment.
