Eames for Herman Miller Zenith RAR Rocking Chair w/ Rope Edge Original Base 1950

About the Item

A rare “RAR” (Rocking Chair on Rod) designed by Charles & Ray Eames for Herman Miller. Cream/yellow fiberglass shell seat produced by Zenith Plastics, 2nd edition, circa 1950s. Rope edge design. Original Herman Miller tag on underside (see photos for reference). The Eames RAR Chair was originally marketed as a rocker chair ‘good for young mothers’ but it is fair to say it is a favorite corner piece in all kinds of homes today. From a private collection. Dimensions: 26.5”h x 25.5”w x 28”d. In exceptionally good vintage condition.
