Cadmium Green light Herman Miller Original Eames DSW Side Shell Chair
A used, original Herman Miller Eames light Cadmium Green side shell chair, on a newer, used walnut DSW base. Differ slightly from the other Cadmium Green DSW, this chair is a gorgeous shade of green and would make a wonderful addition to your dining room.
The Eames shell series chairs really don’t 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 versions were introduced by Herman Miller a little later on using fabrics and textiles designed by the esteemed designer Alexander Girard.
This cadmium green shell is in a good used condition, with no major marks or scratches. The colour has faded slightly, however it is expected with its vintage age. The newer, replacement Herman Miller DSW bases are in good used condition.
The ‘C’ stamp is an example of a Later Cincinnati Milacron Star, manufactured between 1965-1978.
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. The vibrant and distinct colour of this particular top will help maintain steady interest
