Charles and Ray Eames

first series RAR
Zenith Plastics/Herman Miller
USA, 1950
fiberglass, birch, nickel
25 w × 25 d × 27 h in (63 × 63 × 69 cm)

Excellent example of the first generation RARs with rope edge, bright label and early strut construction extending from the front to the rear of the base. This configuration was available only on the first examples of the RAR to be produced. The Eames' altered the design within a year and very few examples bear this detail.

estimate: $2,000–3,000
result: $3,068
