Circa 1947/1948. Tagged with Evans/Herman Miller. 5-2-5 screw arrangement. Absolutely amazing woodgrain.

This is an early DCW lounge chair by Charles and Ray Eames. It is tagged with both Herman Miller and Evans logos. The screw configuration on the bottom is 5-2-5. From what I have read, Herman Miller changed its screw configuration to 5-2-4 after their first years of production. Based on that, this is a first generation model from 1947 or 1948. The woodgrain on this piece is absolutely incredible. I must have gone through hundreds of photos of these chairs during my research and very few come close to comparing to the unique woodgrain of this one.

This chair is in wonderful vintage condition. It is sturdy and useable. The only visual imperfection is a small chip in the veneer on the back edge. It is roughly 1/2" x 1/4". The rubber shock mounts are in good useable condition as shown in the photos.
