The first generation Evans’ chairs are easily identifiable by this style of the foot which changed to the ‘boot’ for the second generation. Evan’s were the company that helped the Eames’s with constructing the molded plywood selection.
The chair is in great vintage condition with all of its original parts. It has achieved a distinctive patina from its long life which has given an extra depth to the colour of the wood.
There are some age-related marks, but this to be expected with a chair that is 80+ years old! There is some small scratching on the backrest but a gentle bit of cleaning and perhaps some slight varnish might help to remove this.
The foil label on the underside indicates this is one of the later versions of Evan’s DCM range when Herman Miller was steadily taking over both the production and marketing of the chairs.
