Brown Herman Miller Original Eames RAR Arm Shell Chair
Herman Miller Brown Eames Fiberglass RAR rocking chair. Super combination of chocolate brown fiberglass arm shell and dark walnut runners on a black metal base.
The deep chocolate brown of the fiberglass is a very sought after colour and highly desirable. The result is an exemplary piece.
Whilst the newer tops were somewhat bolder in colour, Herman Miller endeavored to retain the ‘Fibrous’ look of the shell which can still be seen on this great example.
Being a newer example of the iconic Eames Shell top; this piece is in good condition with only minor wear visible. There are some superficial marks on the top but the price reflects this. With an hour or two of restoration, this top will be gleaming once again.
The used, later, dark wood RAR base is in great condition, displaying the rich texture of the wood and black finish of the frame.
The emblem found on the base of the shell dictates it was made at the Herman Miller factory.
Eames Shells are always a coveted piece, but their investment value is determined by many disciplines. The older the shell, for example, will add to its investment value along with the rarity of the colour, the age of the base and the origin of production. This shell being a new example means its initial investment value may be lower, but over time, it will steadily appreciate.
