C. 1961 Set of 6 Herman Miller Eames Orange Bikini Pad Swivel PKC2 Dining Chairs

About the Item

Listed for sale is a very rare and original set of six Herman Miller Eames PKC-2 dining / side chairs, designed by Ray and Charles Eames. This set is special for a number of reasons. First off, the set dates to circa 1961. This is clued in from the label underneath, which states Herman Miller, Inc. Furthermore, original sets are highly sought after and difficult to come by. Many of the Eames wire chairs are found nowadays without covers, as the covers become worn and are thrown away. This set retains all six of the original covers, which are in good to very good condition across the set, though they do show wear on edges as noted in the photos. They also have the Bikini pads, which are more desirable generally than the fully upholstered pads. Lastly, the set retains original labels and has an unusual white wire with swiveling contract base. In short, this is a nicely patinated and original set, which is in nice usable condition. The metal base and uppers show some wear as expected for vintage examples. They measure approximately 33 inches tall by 19 inches wide and 20 inches deep. The price listed includes all six chairs. The buyer may pick up the furniture, have it shipped by our shipping partners (buyer will pay for full shipping cost, though will not have to arrange it), or discuss potential delivery within reason following the end of the auction. The listed shipping cost is an estimate, though we can likely stay below that number for most areas of the country. If you win the item, we can discuss shipping options, prices, etc. and we will make sure that it is as inexpensive for you as possible. We work with a shipper locally who takes great care in their work and has been complemented often on their packing and shipping quality.

  • 1948 Eames Evans for Herman Miller DCM Dining Chairs Metal & Walnut Set of Five
    By Charles and Ray Eames, Evans Products Company
    Located in Philadelphia, PA
    Listed for sale is an original set of five DCM chairs, designed by Charles and Ray Eames. This particular set dates to approximately 1948 and was produced by Evans plywood company (the earliest manufacturer of these chairs). Notable also is that they were specified in Walnut, which contrasts the metal legs beautifully. These chairs retain their original feet, shock mounts (some may have been replaced during their lifetime), and screws. The walnut panels may show some wear. Please see photos. Their Evans production can be confirmed based primarily on the feet and headrest connection. Only early Evans examples had this round, circular detail connecting the backrest to the frames. Please note that the chair frames have not been cleaned, as some collectors prefer fully original examples. If requested, we can certainly clean the frames to remove the oxidation noted in the photos. Another set of four Evans DCM...
