The Eames RSR Rocking Chair is a fiberglass side chair - the abbreviation RSR stands for Rocking (R), Side Chair (S) Rod Base (R).
The Eames RSR Chair was non existent in Herman Miller's advertising and has only been found as a purchasable option in one release of the 1963 sales catalogue It was more of a customization by purchasers, mixing and matching the various tops and bases available. Some are likely to be new purchases of top and base from Herman Miller (customized) but the majority of what would be found in the marketplace are more likely a case of base swapping.
Despite its low-key, almost non official beginnings, the RSR is still very recognizable as an Eames fiberglass Side Chair classic.
It is surprisingly comfortable and has such sculptural good looks, it really is more than just a chair. Its hard to say what the date on this model is, but it looks like the older 2nd generation ( 1959-1993) fiberglass shell also known as Molded Plastic Zenaloy (fiberglass re-enforced plastic), not the later plastic model. The colour is bright and the overall condition is very good. it sits on a Welded Steel Tubing Frame and the Rocking Runners is Birch
