Couple spends $5 on Eames chair that may be worth tens of thousands!
On second thought, maybe not. If this chair was manufactured in 1946, it would have been produced by the Evans Products Company and should be included on the label. Herman Miller took over production and distribution in 1949. Also, the bottom bolt pattern is different than the one used by the Evans Products Company. A 5-2-5 pattern (5 attaching the front legs, 2 securing the seat at middle, and then another 5 at the rear holding on the rear legs) was used between 1946-1949. Herman Miller changed the pattern to 5-2-4 after a year of production. - Via
