One of the original colours Charles and Ray used when producing these chairs, this style of the chair needs little introduction. This colour dates back to the origin of these shells in 1952/53 and still remains to be a very popular, and much desirable shell to own, truly highlighting the versatility of these chairs.
Original fiberglass shells are defined by their base colour which shows the vibrant fibers contained within the shell. This version of the Seafoam chair displays this perfectly.
As these are vintage shells, they will have signs of age and wear, but they are very minimal and the price reflects this. The picture of the dowel base is different from the actual base, as the actual base is of a lighter golden colour rather than a walnut. Further images are available upon request.
The shell is on a later, re-introduced DSW base which is in good used condition.
The crescent and star denote the Cincinnati Milacron factory of origin. Please note that not all shells will have the patent label.
Eames Side Shells are great investment pieces, but how much of an investment piece relies upon multiple factors; the age of the shell, the rarity of the colour, the manufacturer, the originality of the base and, of course, the condition of the shell. With this piece being a very good condition of the Seafoam version, its investment value is reasonable.
