1 x Herman Miller Original Eames Green Velvet Upholstered RAR Rocking Chair
Here is a really unique and amazing Eames RAR rocker with a gorgeous shell of beautiful dark green velvet upholstery atop a dark grey arm shell, sumptuous! We have never before seen this combination of amazing velvet and dark shell and is one of our favourites.
Old vintage pink shells command vast sums, sometimes as much as 1500 euros because they were so hard to find due to small numbers being made. This is the next best thing, a later upholstered version from the esteemed fabric designs of Alexander GIrard combined onto the Herman Miller shell.
Fiberglass originals always have a base colour and gorgeous 'visible' fibers in the shell itself. Upholstered version were introduced by Herman Miller a little later on using fabrics and textiles designed by the esteemed designer Alexander Girard.
The fiber shell and fabric are in superb condition with nothing to note apart from marks associated with age to the shell and fabric.
Chair comes on a second hand later RAR base, again in excellent condition.
Eames Shell Chairs vary from 1 to 5 stars for investment. The reasons depend on so many factors but mainly the condition, the rarity of the colour, the originality of the base, the age and of course the maker are those that determine.This is such a unique piece we have rated at 3 stars as we are yet to see a similar one.
