DCM Chairs (1948)
Made by Herman Miller
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 chairs is also available in the case you'd like a set of eight or nine. We may be able to track down an additional chair to make a set of ten. For context, the set of four is original as a group and similarly, this set of five came from the same estate together.
