Original Eames PKW-2 Wire Chair on Dowel Swivel Base
Scarce, original, 1950s Eames PKW-2 wire chair on walnut dowel swivel base for Herman Miller. One of the finest Eames PKW-2 chairs we have had at OAM. Bikini leather patina is beautiful, lined woven fabric is not dried out or brittle but is soft and fresh. Gorgeous texture revealed on the back contrasting the wire frame. Seat cover has some visible signs of abrasion which add to its aged demeanor. Note this example possesses the bikini button, and walnut dowel base retains original hardware. Swivel function moves smoothly, and all glides are original and present. This chair has never been taken apart, there are no signs of old repairs. Signed with the paper manufacturer's label to the underside: [Herman Miller Furniture Company Venice, California] along with the tax stamp. Hits all the fine points, a knockout collector's item.
19" long x 17" deep x 32" high, seat height 18"
