The iconic restaurant was in operation for about a decade in the 1960s.
"Herman Miller" embossed on the bottom along with the paper label. Overall great vintage condition with age appropriate wear, notably superficial scuffs and small cuts on the vinyl, as shown, which doesn't detract from the overall functionality and structural integrity of the chair.There's also standard wear and typical pitting on the chrome base. These minor imperfections are already reflected in the price.
The seat cushion is still very plush and soft, which is rare for these vintage chairs. The seams are tight and the armshell is solid. All floor glides are intact on the La Fonda base.This is a true collector's chair, vintage and all-original in a rare style and desirable black naugahyde and parchment color combo, which makes it suitable for virtually every type of decor. This is a must-have for serious Eames and Girard collectors, so don't miss this opportunity to own this all-original vintage, classic collectible chair.
