Product Description

A vintage edition of a Herman Miller Eames white arm shell chair is emboldened by its Alexander Girard designed beige upholstery which is finished with the light edging and matching light wood of the used RAR rocking base. This particular shell is also extra special as it features a birthplate screwed into the backrest!

The Eames shells require little introduction with prototypes beginning in the late 1940s, production began in 1950. Arm shells were the first to be produced and the side shells were introduced in 1952/1953.

The RAR base was only available until 1968, after which they were only available to the employees of Herman Miller who were expecting children. It was customary for the employee to choose which top they wanted and, once they had done so, a birth plate with the name and birthday of the child was screwed to the back of the shell and the chair was gifted to the employee!

Individual Characteristics

The arm shell is in very good condition for its age; the fabric upholstery is in great vintage condition with no lifts or tears. The shell is in good condition with no cracks or dents evident.

The ‘S’ inside the circle stamp signifies the shell originates from Herman Miller’s Summit Plastics factory.
