The Eames shell series chairs really do not need any introduction. With early prototypes beginning in the late 1940s, 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. The upholstered version was introduced by Herman Miller a little later on using fabrics and textiles designed by the esteemed designer Alexander Girard.
As a used chair, it is in a nice vintage original condition. Of course, 50+-year-old shells have a patina expected with age but there are no cracks or major chips. This chair is completed with a new DSW base, therefore the chair's stability is still very much like a brand new chair.
The crescent and star denote the Cincinnati Milacron factory of origin. The later Cincinnati Milacron stamp also indicates that this chair was made around 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. This shell is a brilliant yellow commercial colour is seldom seen and therefore a good investment product.
