Lemon Yellow Set (6) Herman Miller Original Eames DSW Side Shell Chair
A set of original vintage Herman Miller lemon yellow Eames fiberglass shells, completed with a newer, used, walnut dowel bases, create perfect dining chairs. As one of the original 6 colours, this sweet yellow is a rather rare find, and it will make a perfect addition to your dining room especially as a set.
The Eames shells were produced in the 1950s, with early prototypes of the armchairs beginning in the late 1940s and have continued to be a highly popular piece of art and furniture. The earlier versions of the arm and side shells are defined by their highly fibrous finish whilst later versions displayed a bolder colour. This particular chair displays a network of fibres, crisscrossing all over the shell which helps define it as an earlier version of the side shell.
These particular used original lemon yellow shells are in a very good condition, with a few marks on the edges, a normal occurrence consistent with its age and usage. The actual chair itself differs slightly from the picture, as it is of a slightly brighter, lighter, lemon yellow, further images are available upon request and before purchase.
The dowel base remains in excellent condition and provides good stability.
The Eames shells range in their investment value depending upon many factors. The condition, age, colour and even origin of the shell can affect the price of each shell. As this is one of the original colours its investment value is more reasonable than some shells and it should see a steady increase over time. As a set, it does come with a slightly discounted price too!
