Black Herman Miller Original Vintage Eames DSW Side Shell Chair
A striking example of an Original Herman Miller Black Eames fiberglass shell chair which is sat upon a used, newer, walnut DSW Base. The bold combination of black shell on dark wood base creates a fantastic example of this chair which will make a fantastic addition to any household environment.
The Eames shell series chairs really do not need any introduction. With early prototypes beginning in the late 1940's, production began on the Eames' dream of 'chairs for the masses' in 1950 with the arm and then the sides later in 1952/53. The original and vintage fiberglass chairs were so versatile and so modern that they only increase in popularity as the years go by.
Fiberglass originals always have a base colour and gorgeous 'visible' fibers in the shell itself. Upholstered version were introduced by Herman Miller a little later on using fabrics and textiles designed by the esteemed designer Alexander Girard.
With its bold colour, this chair makes would make a great statement piece for your chosen location. This rarely used piece has barely seen sunlight as the distinct lack of marks on the shell.
There is a very slight fade of fibers on the front of the shell, however due to its rarity its still a truly remarkable piece of original vintage furniture.
The logo dictates the shell was made between 1980-1989.
Eames Shell Chairs vary from 1 to 5 stars for investment. The reasons depend on so many factors but mainly the condition, the rarity of the colour, the originality of the base, the age and of course the maker are those that determine.
