Eames House Bird in Gold
The Eames House Bird in Gold is offered as a very limited edition. We have one of only 1000 made in the world, so if you'd like to secure this very special design piece, come see us in store.
Hand-made, in large part, the gold leaf is carefully applied to the wooden bird with tweezers by a goldsmith. The surface is protected with a thin lacquer finish.
The highly sought-after Eames House Bird is based on a treasured artefact of Appalachian folk art (circa 1910) collected by the renowned designers Charles & Ray Eames.
For over 50 years it has stood in the Eames House, and featured in many of their interior photographs, with the stylised design complementing their clean, modern design aesthetic.
This gold leaf edition of the classic design object includes a numbered label, and a numbered certificate of authentication. The golden bird is packed in a high-end black & gold gift box.
