For your consideration is one (1) authentic, vintage EAMES Herman Miller rope edge chair.
One of the best Eames chairs I've seen, particularly for an early, first-generation rope edge chair.

Clean, free of cracks, with the iconic Zenith Herman Miller Eames checkerboard label still intact. Translucent and stunning.
The rope along the edge is still intact and very clear. Beautiful sheen on the surface. Gorgeous fibrous armshell.
We believe this color is lemon yellow, as it has a more yellow tint than our parchment rope edge chairs but with a similar transulucency. In any case, please examine the photos to make your own determination.

Large, hockey puck shock mounts, and original X-base with all glides (I believe these are original domes of silence, but examine the photos to confirm for yourself).

Came from the estate of its sole original owner, which helps explain the quality and condition of a chair that's over 60 years old.

The only flaws this integrally impeccable chair has are characteristic fiberglass patina, edge wear, surface dirt, which is completely normal and can easily be cleaned, and a few chips on the underside of the back and tiny dings on the bottom lip (see photos). These are already reflected in the price.

Don't miss your chance to own a piece of mid century modern history. Eames chairs are among a handful of furniture pieces that actually appreciate in value over time, and this has been proven time and again at various sales in the last couple of decades, so this is certainly a sound investment, not to mention a valuable addition to your collection.

Final sale, no refunds or exchanges, so please ask any and all questions prior to purchase.

Please examine all photos and if you need more photos of anything in particular, don't hesitate to ask. Thanks!
