Eames Rope Edge Brown Taupe Tan Umber Zenith Herman Miller Fiberglass Arm Chair:
For your consideration is one (1) authentic, vintage EAMES Herman Miller rope edge fiberglass armshell.
One of the rarer colors for rope edge chairs, this is a grayish brown/taupe color (greige or raw umber?). Whatever its official color, it's lovely. Astunning grayish taupe/light brown/tan umber color, one of the most gorgeous and versatile colors from Eames. It's like a light brown tinged with gray, depending on the lighting.
Overall excellent vintage condition, particularly for an early, first-generation rope edge chair. The fiberglass shell is very clean and free of cracks or any integral flaws, save a couple of small, minor nicks on the seat, as depicted, and some shock mount shadows, which are typical of the Zenith large mount chairs.
Large, hockey puck shock mounts, beautiful sheen on the surface, especially when under indoor tungsten light. This chair was professionally restored by an Eames expert in Southern California and has a very smooth seat with a great gloss thanks to the protective gel/clear coat applied on the entire armshell during restoration.
Price includes original black X-base sans glides.
Final sale, no refunds or exchanges, so please ask any and all questions and examine all photos prior to purchase. If you need more, feel free to ask.
