Product Description

What could be better than an authentic Grey Eames Arm Shell? A beautiful all original Herman Miller RAR sat on a distinctive newer, used walnut RAR rocking base! The grey finish is a very popular choice and its highly ‘fibrous’ look is complimented by the dark wood of the used rocking base creating a classic chair.

With early designs beginning back in the 1940s, Charles and Ray’s fiberglass series really have accomplished their dream of designing a chair not only for the masses but that can be used for a wide variety of environments. The dyeing process improved as the manufacturing process became more consistent and, though the highly fibrous finish is still visible, the depth and strength of the colour became greater creating a truly amazing combination.

Individual Characteristics

A much sought-after colour for these shells, this shell is in good condition for its age. There are some marks on the shell, expected with its age, but overall it is a great example of a vintage classic.

The three dots in the shape of a triangle indicates this shell was produced by 3M for Herman Miller and was at the stage where production was being moved from Zenith Plastics into Herman Miller’s direct control.

Investment Details

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. The colour consistency and overall good condition coupled with this being one of the most popular colours should all see this be a great investment piece.
