An all original parchment Eames RAR rocking arm chair from the Venice factory by Herman Miller is a great collector’s and statement piece. The shell is a little aged, but proudly displays the original label, which is quite rare these days, and is coupled with its original, newer, RAR base.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 work-shop, producing many various artistic pieces including the Powers of Ten film.
The shell does have a small chip in the front of the seat section. It has not impacted the usability of the shell but it is evident from the photographs. Otherwise the shell is in a good vintage condition. The red ‘Venice Label’ on the underside of the shell indicates it is a 3rd generation shell that was produced in California. The base the shell is on is slightly lighter than on the pictures, but further pictures are available and recommended before purchase.
